a temporary gallery of masterpieces that will only last until the next rain

Waterfall Arts continues Belfast Chalk Walk tradition

    BELFAST — Later this month, Waterfall Arts will host the fourth annual Chalk Walk, taking place along the Harborwalk in Belfast. The event is free and open to the public.

    The community is invited to stroll through Heritage Park on Saturday, Sept. 26, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., to watch artists create a temporary gallery of masterpieces that will only last until the next rain. More than a dozen local and out-of-state artists–professionals and novices alike–have reserved square "canvases" along the Harborwalk pavement.

    In years past, artists have shared uplifting messages, improvised intricate drawings, interpreted famous master paintings, and created optical illusions, according to Waterfall Arts, in a news release.

    Chalk will be available for passersby to join the fun in a community drawing area.

    “Masks will be worn and distance will be kept!” said WA.

    Pre-drawn 4’x4′ squares will be reserved for artists registered in advance — first come, first served.

    Waterfall Arts will supply chalk, rags, knee pads, and drinking water.

    For questions, more information, or to register for a square, contact Bridget Matros at: bridget@waterfallarts.org.
