STEAMBOAT NIGHTS

Duke Energy Twinkle Chalk Walk – 2018

steamboatnights.com

August 31 (6:00 to 11 p.m.) and September 1 (6:00 to 8:30 p.m.)

Awards will be given September 1 9:30p after the lantern parade Chalk Walks entertain, engage, and educate! This event is based on an Italian tradition of street painting that dates to the 16th century, known as i madonnari (street painters). Using pastels, artists may choose to create an artwork from 1 of 5 different categories:

1) Jeffersonville Landmarks

2) The Great Steamboat

3) River Folklore

4) Trompe lʼoeil- French for fool the eye

5) Kids (ages 6-10)

As a participant you are encouraged to design a composition from the categories above and to utilize both Aug 31nd Sept 2nd as days to create! The community would love to see you in action! This year is very special in that we have a professional Chalk Walk artist attending the festival that will be drawing alongside our citizens, creating an anamorphic (three dimensional looking piece)!

As a participant, upon registration and picking up your bag of supplies, you will locate your designated square. The squares will be clearly identified and will be next to the water feature in Big Four Park (under the twinkle tunnel). Held in conjunction with the Steamboat Nights Festival, the Twinkle Chalk Walk is truly a community event that we hope will draw on the amazing talents of area and regional adult and child artists. Individuals and families with no training in art are especially encouraged to participate. Our goal is to draw the city's most creative citizens for one special weekend this fall to contribute to the unique, creative feel of our heritage festival, which is Steamboat Nights! Come on out Jeffersonville and enjoy the chalk art experience!
