Sidewalk Art at MPAC during Chalk Walk

It’s where the sidewalk ends…and your imagination begins!

Join McKinney Performing Arts Center for a celebration of art and community with CHALK WALK on Saturday, April 9. Sidewalks spring to life with color and creativity as artists’ imaginations run wild. CHALK WALK is held in support of McKinney Main Street’s Art Walk, an annual art fair showcasing local and regional artists.

Artists may decide to enter their work into a judged competition. Artwork will be judged based on two categories:  professional artist or community participant. The grand prize for the professional artist category is a publicized show of work in MPAC’s Gallery. The community participant grand prize is complimentary use of a space within MPAC for a personal event.

Applications and conceptual sketches are due by Friday, April 1.

All proceeds from CHALK WALK benefit McKinney Performing Arts Center. Located in CollinCounty’s historic courthouse, MPAC’s mission is achieved through S.C.E.N.E.: Serving our community; Creating memorable experiences; Enriching arts and culture; Nurturing relationships and cultivating collaboration; and Encouraging diverse programming. 

Artist check-in is at 8:00 am on Saturday, April 9. Drawing begins at 9:00 am and judging occurs at 3:30 pm. Winners will be announced at an award ceremony at 4:30 pm. Available squares are located on the perimeter of MPAC and range from $15-35 and require advance registration. A designated kids’ area will also be available for $5 with no advance registration.
