Artist, Vendor applications now available for ‘Chalk the Block 2019’

The El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD) has opened the application period for artists and vendors to participate in Chalk the Block 2019 (CTB12).

“Chalk the Block is an opportunity for artists to have their work seen by thousands of people throughout the festival weekend alongside internationally known featured installation and performing artists,” said Museums and Cultural Affairs Department Assistant Director Ben Fyffe.

The 12th presentation of the largest public arts festival in the region is scheduled for the weekend of October 11 through 13. The streets of Downtown El Paso become canvasses for artists to display their chalk masterpieces at Chalk the Block.

Chalk artists and vendors interested in participating in the festival can do so by filling out an application online. All applications must be submitted online; no paper applications will be accepted. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Chalk artists can apply in one of three categories – Showcase, Emerging, or Student. Showcase and Emerging Artist categories are for ages 18 or older. Artists applying in the student category must be high school age. The selection process is highly competitive and space is limited for chalk artists and vendors.

For more information about Chalk the Block, call the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department at (915) 212-0110, or click here.
