The Downtown Oshkosh Chalk Walk is back TODAY (Saturday, August 5) running 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the Opera House Square in downtown Oshkosh.
“This is a great opportunity to watch art being created,” says Sandy Prunty, owner of Atomic Katz and one of the event organizers. “It’s amazing to see these drawings go from a basic outline on the sidewalk in the morning to a full color work of art a few hours later.”
“The art will remain around the Square for people to enjoy when they come downtown in the days and maybe even weeks after the event – at least until Mother Nature washes it away,” Prunty said.
There will be local food stands, live music and other activities in the Square throughout the event.
Oshkosh Public Library is sponsoring an area where kids can create their own art on the sidewalks around the sundial and become “part of the art” with some fun photo opportunities.
There will be prizes awarded for Artists’ Choice and People’s Choice in both youth and adult categories. The youth category includes kids ages 12-17, with artists age 18 and older competing in the adult category.
