Chalk Challenge

The Sidewalk Chalk Challenge is back! This summer, the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center and the Auburn Arts Association challenge the Auburn Community to see how their favorite work inspires them to create a masterpiece of their own, but out of sidewalk chalk.

Following the success of last summer’s Sidewalk Chalk Challenge, this year’s chalk creations must again be inspired by a famous artist or architecture. The submission must also include three facts about the artist or architecture selected or three reasons how the artist or architecture inspired the completed chalk work.

Individuals, households and businesses in the Auburn area are encouraged to participate in the JDCAC Sidewalk Chalk Challenge. Those interested in the challenge can fill out the application HERE. No entry fee is required and registration is encouraged

Digital Submission are due by July 25th. Judging will take place the following two days and winners will be announced on July 28th.
