Chalking it up in STL

Our partners in chalk, Chalk Riot, have had a busy week! On Thursday, April 21, Chalk Riot lead a chalk party for Washington University students in the Danforth University Center. Students were invited to join in embellishing the many chalkboard walls in the Center.

On Saturday, April 22, Chalk Riot created a tribute to Shakespeare's "Timon of Athens" outside the St. Louis Central Library in downtown St. Louis as part of the Shake38 festival.

Sunday, April 23, brought a day of community healing arts as Art Saint Louis and Chalk Riot presented the Community Chalk Riot to Honor Prince at Vintage Vinyl in University City, MO. Hundreds of people joined in the public art project, drawing and writing on the sidewalk. Click here for event images, courtesy of the Riverfront Times.
