2016 Theme: Nature & Animals Transforming Downtown
“Chalk A Mile” is a free event in the heart of Downtown Hornell, hosted by Hornell Partners for Growth and the Hornell Area Arts Council. An entire city mile is transformed into a colorful playground with more sidewalk chalk than anyone could dream of.
Kids of all ages will have the chance to participate and leave their mark, albeit temporarily, in the city creating whatever their imagination can come up with, while drawing, learning and watching over the shoulders of local and professional artists!
To signup for a free sidewalk square, including free sidewalk chalk, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and use the subject CHALK.
ROUTE – from Burger King on Main St to Salvation Army on Center St, including Broadway Mall, both sides of the street is a little over 1 city mile. It is estimated that we will have 600+ chalk able sidewalk squares ranging from 2×2 to 4×4.
TIME – We ask that everyone who would like to do a square arrive between 10am-11am on Saturday June 25
AMOUNT: We WILL allow 1 square per person (previously stated 1 square per family). After 11am, we will allow people to design additional squares as supplies last.
ARTISTS – Professional and/or College level – May request up to 4 squares at once.
***Please feel free to bring your own chalk and sidewalk paint however we will give free chalk while supplies last. We will also have tempera paint to use as a base / frame for your art work.
