Chalk It Up! Saturday April 17, 2010

Chalk It Up!
Saturday, April 17, 2010
West Manchester Mall, Center Court
13 Murals - Vote for the People's Choice Award
12-5 PM

Chalk It Up! @ West Manchester Mall > April 17th 12noon-5pm

Chalk It Up! is an exciting event designed to celebrate the creativity of high school artists and promote the importance of public art.

Join us in transforming the center court of the West Manchester Mall into an artist’s canvas and a place for audiences to watch works of art being created right before their eyes. Money raised from the event is used to benefit YorkArts’ summer art programs.
All high school students, grades 9 to 12 are eligible to participate. Space is limited to twelve murals, so REGISTER EARLY. Registration is necessary to be eligible for prize money. Artists are encouraged to participate as a group or individually; however, only one prize will be awarded per mural.

Murals will be judged and prizes will be awarded in the following categories: Top Chalk, Honorable Mention, and "People's Choice." The "People's Choice" award is given for the mural that receives the most votes from audience members and mall shoppers, so encourage your family and friends to come out & support you or your school.

Volunteers: The success of this innovative effort lies in part with the generosity of our volunteers. Everyone is invited to be a part of this great day.
If you are interested in participating in Chalk it UP! or would like more information, please contact YorkArts at 717-848-3200 or email
