Zeeland’s Chalk Festival Happening August 6th

August 6th will mark Zeeland’s second Chalk Festival, taking place from 4pm to 8pm on the Woonerf (Elm Street between Cherry Street and Main Street).

The public is welcome to stroll the street to watch the artists actively working on their pieces from 1pm to 4pm. From 4pm to 8pm the event will include the finished products, an opportunity to speak with the artists, live music, food truck, outdoor games as well as the ability to vote for your favorite piece. The event will include entertainment for all ages!

Artists will be using chalk as their medium and the streets as their canvas. They 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.

This is a great way to expose young children to appreciate art in a different form! The artists for the event range from teens to adults as well as professional training and self-taught.

The artists being featured at the event are: Gwen Russell, Leandro Hernandez Jr, Rachel Murray, Tahleez Bartels, Mary Bent-Buist, Emily Miller, Esther Heethuis, Lisa Hann, Andrea Rich.
