Seeking chalk artists of all ages and abilities! Join the Baltimore Architecture Foundation for a vibrant day of chalk art and community at the Charles Street Promenade! Come and create a masterpiece in chalk inspired by Baltimore’s favorite buildings. Chalk art will be judged and prizes will be awarded in each category.
As a tribute to Baltimore’s rich architectural history, artwork should be inspired by one or more of the following buildings:
- Peabody Library
- Rawlings Conservatory
- Patterson Park Pagoda
- Enoch Pratt Central Library
- Penn Station
- Bromo Seltzer Tower
- Belvedere Hotel
- Camden Yards
- American Visionary Art Museum
- National Aquarium
If you wish to have your own artist square and be entered into the Chalk Art Contest, you must register! The registration deadline is May 26. We’ll provide a box of chalk pastels containing seven different colors upon your arrival. You will have up to three hours to complete a 4’ x 4’ square of artwork. Each square can accommodate an individual artist or a team of two. Registered participants will be sent additional information via email. Register here to join the fun!
Artwork will be located in the 1200 block of North Charles Street between Biddle and Preston Streets. North Charles Street will be closed off to vehicles during the Promenade.
