Chalk the Walk ARTsplosion is where hundreds of artists and “wanna-be artists” gather to turn the boardwalk into an impromptu canvas of color! Artist registration takes place on the boardwalk at 17th Street, and chalk art is displayed for three blocks. At Chalk the Walk, participants draw four by four foot chalk drawings. A theme guides artists each year. 200 competitors complete chalk drawings that are evaluated by a panel of judges. Judges score the drawings according to criteria such as composition, use of color, adherence to theme, and creativity. There are three competitive divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth. Trophies and cash prizes are awarded for each division, with winners announced at 4:30pm at the registration tent.
