The Oberlin Chalk Walk is a festive colorful event that celebrates the tradition of sidewalk painting that began in 16th century Italy. Master professional artists and several local artists create works of art on pavement all over town. Sidewalks from the Allen Art Museum to the Public Library and from the college bookstore to the Oberlin Inn will be available for children and adults to use as “canvases” to make their own sidewalk creations. All skill levels were welcome. High quality pastels were provided to all participants.
This totally free event was made possible by a collaborate effort of its main sponsors:
Allen Memorial Art Museum
Firelands Association for the Visual Arts (FAVA)
Nordson Corporation Foundation
Oberlin Public Library
