The annual Sidewalk Commentary Contest, a.k.a. “Chalk-on-the-Walk,” will take place on Wednesday, May 1, 2013. This is an annual student contest presented by the IUP College of Fine Arts and the IUP chapter of the National Art Education Association.
Students, student organizations, and IUP classes are encouraged to create a social or political message in chalk between 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., with colored chalk provided.
Judging will occur between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. Prizes awarded (for IUP students only) will be announced in the Oak Grove at 5:00 p.m. The public is invited to stroll through the Oak Grove to watch students create their drawings throughout the day and when the works are completed.
This event is held this year as part of President Michael Driscoll’s inaugural celebration. The Driscolls will join several others as judges for the contest.
