6-8pm at Creative York

Artists are asked to consider the question, “Who or what are you a big fan of?” Fan Art builds on a work of fiction, taking inspiration from characters or other aspects of someone else’s work.

Award Ceremony and Artist Reception sponsored by Tetra Design Co. Juror, Stephen Michael Haas, will announce Best of Show and Honorable Mentions.

9am-3pm around Downtown York.

Chalk Walk is an exciting event designed to celebrate the creativity of artists and promote the importance of public art. The sidewalks in downtown York become an artist’s canvas and a place for an audience to watch works of art being created.

Creative York will be partnering with York Arts Week to present Chalk Walk on Saturday August 27, 2022 from 9am-4pm. Looking to get involved or learn more? Check out our brochure: Chalk Walk Brochure
