Brevard College will host its second annual Sidewalk Art Competition on Saturday,
April 27th from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM in Robbins Plaza (the courtyard outside of the Myers
Dining Hall).

Located on the campus of Brevard College, the festival is free to the public. Sidewalk art will
feature local college and high school students. There will also be live music, llamas, a kid’s
chalk play area, cornhole, and other fun activities.
The competition is open to all Brevard College students, as well as local 10-12 high school
students, and the public is encouraged to stop by to watch the live drawings and admire the
finished products. Participants submit their ideas in advance and are approved by Visual Arts
faculty members in order to compete. Each age group is eligible to win a total of $500 in cash
rewards and gift certificates to BC Outfitters, the Brevard College gear shop.
Contest rules dictate that each drawing must remain within the designated square area and
that no spray fixatives may be used. In addition to chalk distributed by Brevard College,
participants may bring their own sidewalk chalk. All materials must be temporary and
washable with soap and water. College students and high school students will not compete
with each other.

“This event is a great opportunity for our art students to show off their art skills free to the
public,” said organizer and faculty member, Sean Parrish. “The best part of the day is seeing the community gather on campus in a festival atmosphere, and admiring the beautiful artwork created by our college and high school students.” Parrish was inspired by
a sidewalk art competition that takes place in Savannah, GA.

Please contact Sean Parrish (parriss@brevard.edu) for more information.
