Chalk-on-the-Walk Contest The annual Sidewalk Commentary Contest, a.k.a. “Chalk-on-the-Walk,” will take place on Wednesday, April 29, 2015. 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.

Although good weather is anticipated for the 29th, the rain date is set for Friday, May 1. The event is funded, in part, by the IUP Student Cooperative Association and managed by the Lively Arts.
