For the second year in a row, Downtown Evanston is hosting a Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest to add color and design to the downtown sidewalks and create a friendly, artsy competition between businesses, artists and families in Evanston! The sidewalk in front of storefronts will be decorated on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning and the winners will be announced Friday evening. Thanks to First Northern Credit Union for sponsoring the Chalk Art Contest and to Blick Art Materials for providing chalk materials.
Come out on Saturday to view the outdoor art gallery while you shop and eat downtown. The double asterisk next to a business name indicates that they will have chalk art design!
