Brevard College will host its first annual Sidewalk Art Competition on Saturday, April 22 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. in Robbins Plaza (the courtyard outside of the Meyers Dining Hall).

The competition is open to all BC students, as well as local 10-12 high school students, and the public is encouraged to stop by to watch the live drawings and admire the finished products. Participant’s had to submit their ideas in advance and be approved by Visual Arts faculty members in order to compete. Each group is eligible to win a total of $500 in cash rewards and gift certificates to BC Outfitters, the Brevard College gear shop.

Contest rules dictate that each drawing must remain within the designated square area and that no spray fixatives may be used. In addition to chalk distributed by Brevard College, participants may bring their own sidewalk chalk. All materials must be temporary and washable with soap and water. College students and high school students will not compete with each other.

“This event is a great opportunity for our students to show off their art skills free to the public,” said organizer and faculty member, Sean Parrish. Parrish said that he was inspired by a sidewalk art competition that takes place in Savannah, GA.
