Fri, Jun 18th 2021 08:10 am

Cash prizes to be awarded

The Lewiston Council on the Arts is once again taking the Chalk YOUR Walk Competition online. 

Organizers said, “This year, we’re opening up the competition to anyone in New York state, and you can compete from the comfort of your driveway, parking lot, path or park! This year's theme is ‘Imagine, Explore & Create!’ Nature, music, animals, hobbies, books, sports … anything can be the inspiration for your mural.”

Guidelines and instructions can be found on the Art Council website, https://artcouncil.org/, and on its Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/lewistonartscouncil/.

Participants can take a picture of their artwork and then email it with the artist(s) name, age, ZIP code and a short artist statement about their inspiration to [email protected] by Aug. 1.

Judges will select the Best of Show winner ($500 prize). All submissions will be posted on the LCA Facebook page, with the People’s Choice Award ($250 prize) determined by online voting.

At 4 p.m. Aug. 14, the LCA will announce the winners at the Lewiston Art Festival and on Facebook.

Chalk YOUR Walk is sponsored by KeyBank and Hyatt's All Things Creative! For more information, call 716-754-0166, email [email protected] or “Like" and follow on Facebook.
