August 9th will mark Zeeland’s first ever Chalk Festival from 4pm to 8pm on the newly renovated Woonerf (Elm Street between Cherry Street and Main Street).
The Festival will include entertainment for all ages! View the work of artists using chalk as their medium and the streets as their canvas. Artists will be creating pieces that are 6’ x 6’ large along the street. Event goers can vote for their favorite Friday night and watch social media for the winner to be
announced on Saturday. The event will also include food trucks, live music and outdoor yard games.
The public is welcome to stroll the street to watch the artist complete their pieces on Friday night. Saturday the art pieces will be available to view, however the artists will not be actively working on them. This is a great way to expose young children to appreciate art in a different form! The artists for the event rang from teens to adults as well as professional training and self-taught.
The artists being featured at the event are: Tess Marhofer, Gwen Russell, Richard Francisco, Leandro Hernandez Jr, Rachel Murray, Tahleez Bartels, Kelli Van Overloop, Pearl Slayton.
