Come out this week and join ProvoPoetry.org in celebrating this year’s Chalk the Block Festival! We are pleased to sponsoring artist Claire Hart. Claire will be including the poem Burning Bush from our POEMBALL submissions in her artwork starting on Thursday and completing the piece on Saturday. Bring the whole family out for three days of art, poetry and fun! Come add your own poem or a favorite poem to the sidewalks in the Riverwoods. They will be providing chalk so everyone can participate.
There will be over 300 artists participating in this event. Individuals and teams are welcome to register for the event to reserve specific spots for their art. The Chalk the Block Festival will provide one box of chalk to registered teams/individuals, but participants can provide their own as well. This event is open to the public though you must register to be an artist.
A little information about Claire. Claire Hart, is an Art Director for the Advertising Emphasis in the Communications program at BYU. She did a graphic representation of Rob Carney’s “She’s Like the Sky. That Endlessly Beautiful” on the giant chalkboard of BYU’s The Wall restaurant in May 2016. Come see the poetry as well as the other artists at this fundraising event to help children in Utah Valley.
