The 12th Annual Oberlin Chalk Walk will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 24 throughout the city’s downtown district.

Local and regional artists will create imaginative chalk drawings and volunteers will be on hand to provide free materials so that visitors of all ages can add their own artwork to the sidewalk gallery.

Returning regional artists participating in this year’s event include Dan Cherney, Hector Castellanos, Wendy Mahon, and Robin Van Lear.

Local professional artists working on the Oberlin Public Library chalk art wall and sidewalks around town include Laura Dahle, David Baker, Dana Juliano, Jan Dregalla, and the Oberlin High School art club. Additional local artists include Anastasia Linger and Beth Wolosz.

The Oberlin Chalk Walk is a collaborative event organized by the Allen Memorial Art Museum, the Firelands Association for the Visual Arts, Oberlin Business Partnership, Oberlin Heritage Center, and the Oberlin Public Library.

A rain date of Sunday, June 25 (also 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) has been set in the event of inclement weather.
