“Artpace Chalk It Up has engaged and delighted thousands of participants for the past 16 years. School and community groups taking part in TeamWorks, San Antonio-based featured artists, visitors to our city, and our entire community have celebrated creative artistic expression together through the creation of chalk murals in downtown San Antonio.
This year, Artpace has adapted this ever-popular festival to ensure local artists, schools, and the public can participate safely – creating murals wherever we are!
#ChalkItUpAtHome: Artpace will provide a Chalk It Up experience for everyone this year in the safety and comfort of your own home or neighborhood. Beginning Saturday, September 12, and occurring every Saturday leading up to Chalk It Up day on October 10, Artpace will announce a #ChalkItUpAtHome prompt, stemming from this year’s Chalk it Up theme – community. Each #ChalkItUpAtHome prompt will be announced on our social media channels and we encourage participants to share on social media—tag us: @artpace, #ChalkItUpAtHome; #ArtpaceAtHome; #MakeArtHappen.
This city-wide engagement is a part of Artpace’s #ArtpaceAtHome initiative, which invites the San Antonio community and beyond to continue to engage in contemporary art while practicing social distancing.”
