WHEN: Saturday, July 9th from 7AM to 7PM. You have 12 hours to complete your masterpiece before the judges arrive!

Sign up as an individual or group (max.4 members) in one of two categories:

1) Emerging Artists

Open to artists of all ages and abilities, this category is meant to be a fun, accessible experience. We'd like to challenge artists in this category to design a piece to our theme: Celebrate Summer!

2) Established Artists

This category is designed to be more competitive. Participants in this group should have some artistic experience and plan on some preparation. Artists are encouraged to design their own inspiration with original artwork or replicate famous works of art.

4 Prizes are up for grabs! Spectators can vote for the People's Choice Awards online by scanning a QR code. The Jury's Prize Awards will be voted on by a panel of selected community members.

People's Choice- Emerging Category: $500 Downtown Dollars
People's Choice- Established Category: $500 Downtown Dollars
Jury's Prize- Emerging Category: $500 Downtown Dollars
Jury's Prize- Established Category: $1,000 Downtown Dollars

And as a special treat, see two of the best street artists in the world, Francois Pelletier and Chalkmaster Dave, create stunning pieces right before your eyes!  Don't worry- they're not competing!!
