This event will feature a chalk art creation by professional street artist Leigh Alfredson (aka Lee Jones), a plein air theme, and a competition for all ages. There is no fee to draw a chalk mural for fun. Those who wish to participate in the chalk art competition will need to register and pay a fee, which includes chalk pastels, sponge and gloves. There will be a $250 cash prize for the overall winner in the chalk art competition, and a $50 prize for chalk artists doing plein air themed pieces. Area plein air artists are also invited to come downtown and paint the chalk artists, river, and downtown Janesville. Spectators are encouraged to come down to the river walk, see the beautiful drawings and chat with the artists! Artists are welcome to work from 9am to 4pm on Saturday, and 10am to 2pm on Sunday.
