The 10th annual groundSPARK Raleigh Street Painting Festival will be held in Moore Square on September 19-21, 2008. Visual Art Exchange produces the festival, which last year had a record number of artists (over 400!) chalking for an intense 27 hours and transforming Martin Street into a work of art.
10,000 visitors came to watch the artists and participate in the many creative (and free!) components of the festival including People’s Choice voting, The Scrap Exchange, and KidsCHALK. This year’s festival will boast additional activities including a weaving wall, Image Slam, free face painting, and even a visit from the Chalk Princess.
DEADLINE to sign up is September 5, 2008, but register by August 29th and the $5 registration fee is waived! See the groundSPARK website for more details and to download a registration form.
