Thank you for your interest in our inaugural 2021 event, Walk the Chalk. We are so excited to bring a little joy and playful color to our community, and together, it will be a really fun project for Bend. Artists who volunteer will produce live art during the event day and it will be left for the community to view for approximately ten days after the event, after which it will be responsibly cleaned to prevent any misuse of the plaza and art.
Our goals with this project are to bring a little color to Bend and reunite the community through art. We are being generously hosted by The Commons off of Brook Street in Downtown Bend, and each artist’s square will be contrived from the smoothest portions of the Brooks Street Plaza. We are also intending to raise money for the Scalehouse project through donations gathered from businesses as they sponsor each square.
Each square will be sponsored by a local business, and each artist will donate their time to produce a piece for the sponsoring business. It must include the business name, and certain tiers of donations will have some input on content and overall look of the piece, but outside of that, the design is up to the artist.
