<DRAWING A CROWD IN LONG BEACH
$1,000 Belmont Shore Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest is Sat., Oct. 19, 2013
JUSTIN RUDD'S BELMONT SHORE SIDEWALK CHALK ART CONTEST will surely "draw" a crowd on Sat., Oct. 19, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 4:10 p.m. Attracting seasoned and emergent visual artists, as well as participants from local high schools and universities, the 10th annual Belmont Shore Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest, presented by Justin Rudd and his nonprofit Community Action Team (C.A.T.), will showcase the works of diverse artists who will use chalk as their medium, and the sidewalks of Belmont Shore as their canvas. There will be $1,000 cash awarded again this year.
ARTISTS WILL DRAW on premium artist's paper that will be affixed to the sidewalk with blue masking tape. Artists are free to take home their artwork after the judging and/or to sell their art at the event. By drawing on paper, it also allows artists to move indoors if it rains (as it did a few years ago).
The event is part of the Belmont Shore Art Walk on 2nd Street.
