AOA wants you to draw on the sidewalk

sidewalk art your work here

Chalk it up!

One of our favorite parts of the annual Troy River Street Festival is the street painting competition. So we're sponsoring an entry this year.

One problem: we don't have an artist.

So, we're looking for an artist to participate in this year's competition. We'll cover the entry fee -- you cover the sidewalk.

Sound like fun? Post a comment to this entry with a link to some of your work by noon this Friday -- we'll pick one winner. (If you don't have work online, please email us with an image.)

The street painting competition is organized by the Arts Center of the Capital Region. It's open to everyone, but space is limited. The entry fee is $15.

The River Street Festival is June 18.

Sponsor me! This will be my third year doing it, and it's one of my favorite parts of summer. Here are my entries from the last two years:

I've never done a sidewalk art competition- But when I was a kid I always used to love the River Street Fest just for this reason. I often dreamed in my tween years that I could have a square to myself!

If I don't win, and can't get a square I'm going to plan ahead for next year!

Have you chosen an artist???

I only have colored pencil/pen examples and I know this is late, but it doesn't say if you've chosen a winner.

I've never tried chalk before, but I'm super confident that I'm going to make something awesome! I'm starting my planning now.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
