Chalk Art Competition extended

A Driveway Chalk Art Competition sponsored by Muscarelle Museum at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg has been extended through Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 6).

The competition was designed to be safe and family-friendly, enabling people to “create a thing of beauty” in their own yard while using art as a balm for healing, according to Steve Prince, Director of Engagement and Distinguished Artist in Residence at the museum.

The competition involves selecting one of 50 images in the museum’s permanent collection and reproducing it in chalk in a driveway or some other outdoor space. The participant then snaps a photo of the finished piece and uploads it to the museum’s website, along with a registration form and a $20 entry fee.

Cash prizes totaling $5,900 will be awarded to winners in several categories.
