Visit Phillips@THEARC to experience a special tour of Wesley Clark’s centennial commission installation, led by the artist.
Then, join Chalk Riot and Positive Chalk DC for THEARC’s first-ever Chalk Walk event! We’ll be celebrating the natural wonders of our local Anacostia watershed in colorful chalk, and everyone is invited to participate. Watch professional artists create a big chalk mural on the pavement in front of Phillips@THEARC and make your own works of chalk art on the sidewalk nearby. Materials will be provided. All ages welcome. No experience necessary.
If it rains, the event will be postponed.
Meet the Organizers
Chalk Riot is an all-women, street-artist crew based in Washington, D.C. specializing in various forms of pavement art, ranging from ephemeral chalk murals to painted placemaking artworks. Established in 2013, they have since created over 400 artworks in four countries and twelve states. When not creating commissions for special events, campaigns, decor or city planning initiatives, they advocate for the use of sidewalk chalk as a tool for positive social change, often partnering with nonprofits and arts education programs.
Positive Chalk DC (PCDC), founded in 2020, contributes to DC's communities by creating brave spaces for families, and particularly children, to imagine their communities in new ways, inspire positive change, and develop the language necessary to advocate for themselves and their communities.
