The sidewalks along Shattuck Ave. in the Gourmet Ghetto in North Berkeley are the target of artists young and old, professional and greenhorn during the 20th Chocolate and Chalk Art Festival.
MAKE ART! With no fees to artists, areas of sidewalk are assigned for you to create your own fanciful chalk drawings. Same-day art registration takes place 10AM-5PM in event booths where colorful artist's chalk is available for $10. A CHALK ART CONTEST for the best drawing will be judged after 4PM. Cash prizes are $150, $100, $50 and runners-up get a $25 gift certificate from Books Inc. Winners will be notified by Wednesday after the event. See prior winners here.
