CARD is seeking artists and “concrete canvas” sponsors to help transform the downtown Chico City Plaza.
The Chico Area Recreation and Park District (CARD) is seeking artists and “concrete canvas” sponsors to help transform the downtown Chico City Plaza. Card is selling squares to individuals, groups and business for the annual event scheduled for September 21.
For individuals or groups who want to “chalk it up”, you may purchase a 4’X4’ square for $20. The fee includes all chalk and blending supplies for your square and is a great opportunity for fledgling artists to express themselves. Businesses who would like to sponsor an 8’x8’ square can purchase them for $50. CARD is seeking experienced artists for the larger 8’X8’ squares. The larger “Fine Art Alley” squares will be located along Fourth Street between Main and Broadway. Businesses may use their own artists or have one assigned to their square.
To apply for the Fine Art Alley, visit www.chicorec.com, go to “Special Events, Pastels on the Plaza,” and download the Fine Art Alley Sponsor application. For more general information including how to purchase a square, contact CARD at 895-4711 or visit www.chicorec.com and click on “Special Events, Pastels on the Plaza.”
