Street Art at the Market—A Community Chalking Activity
WHEN: Saturday, July 27, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
WHERE: 80 Main Street, West Orange
ADMISSION: optional suggested donation of $5 will be used to support additional WOAC events.
The West Orange Arts Council (WOAC) in collaboration with the West Orange Farmer's Market and the Downtown West Orange Alliance presents “Street Art at the Market.” The community is invited to participate or watch the transformation of the pavement into art.
The event is being organized by WOAC Board Member Brian Convery, who coordinates gallery and pop-up shows in New Jersey, New York, Chicago and London. "The idea of chalk art really reaches all," states Convery. "What starts out as typically a child’s tool for making sidewalk art becomes an all inclusive event, where anyone who wishes to be a chalk rockstar can participate."
“Street Art at the Market” is designed to be inclusive and about human unity and connection. "This event is part of our mission to celebrate the arts and artists and engage our community with workshops, exhibits and innovative activities," adds Patricia Mitrano, WOAC Board Chair.
