Chalk Walk 2013
The tradition of chalk artistry on pavement dates back 500 years, and Oberlin's annual chalk art festival, Chalk Walk, is one of many that still take place in cities and towns around the globe. Picture-perfect weather prevailed for this year's Chalk Walk—Oberlin's eighth—which took place Saturday, June 22, on streets throughout downtown. As it does each year, the event attracted people of all ages and skill levels. The event, free and open to all, is sponsored by community organizations, including the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Firelands Association for the Visual Arts, Oberlin Business Partnership, Oberlin Public Library, Oberlin Heritage Center, and Lorain National Bank.
