For the 14th annual Chalk it Up festival, wherein a segment of downtown is turned into a giant, street-level art gallery of chalk works, Artpace has expanded its footprint beyond Houston Street to include Travis Park and a segment of Jefferson Street. All told, this year’s event will transform seven downtown city blocks into a sprawling artistic collaboration.

In addition to the Team Works competition, featuring 50 students groups vying for the title of Best Mural, and the new Corporate Competition, which gets local business sponsors involved in the creative fun, this year’s featured artists, selected through an open call, include Bridge Projects (a collaboration between locals Stuart Allen and Cade Bradshaw), Kim Bishop, Eden Collins, Carol Cunningham, Xavier Gilmore, Jasmeet Kaur, Justin Korver, Barbara Minarro, Tim Olson, Dora Orajel, Andrei Renteria, Luis Valderas and Jason Willome.



Attendees can get their own creative mojo rising in the freestyle area, while also enjoying music from local bands and DJs, and food from some of SA’s finest food trucks.

Free, Saturday, October 14, 10am-4pm, Downtown Houston Street between Flores and Presa streets, Travis Park, Jefferson Street, (210) 212-4900, artpace.org.
