Event Navigation

To connect the Cleveland Museum of Art community online and to maintain new safety procedures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CMA invites everyone to participate in the 31st Annual Chalk Festival virtually on Saturday, September 12, and Sunday, September 13. Participants are encouraged to share their chalk drawings on Facebook and Instagram using the #CMAChalkFestival.

The CMA’s “Virtual Chalk Festival: Love Your Community with All Your Art” encourages everyone to explore the theme of community and express it in a colorful chalk drawing on their sidewalk or driveway. Inspiration may come from socially distanced backyard get-togethers with neighbors, front porch concerts, tending a community garden, well-known neighborhood architecture or historical landmarks or a favorite nature spot. Visit the CMA and take in artworks in the galleries for inspiration, peruse the museum’s collection online or take a tour on the ArtLens App featuring themes related to community. (ArtLens tours are also accessible off-site through the app.)

Get ready for the event with the CMA’s virtual Chalk Festival toolkit. This online resource includes chalking tips, suggested materials and a Spotify playlist featuring song selections by past Chalk Festival music performers.
