Chalk the walk

The paved walkways of Savannah’s scenic Forsyth Park spring to life at SCAD’s 34th annual Sidewalk Arts Festival. In a tradition nearly as old as the university itself, SCAD students, alumni and high school students create colorful chalk masterpieces and compete for coveted prizes.

Registration is now open

An open-air art gallery

The sidewalk artists represent SCAD’s many areas of study, producing a diverse spectrum of chalk art inspired by distinct styles, backgrounds, interests, cultures and disciplines. See artwork from previous years

The festival is diverse too — this year, international cultural offerings, music and food vendors make this the perfect event for all ages.

Pictures come to life

Experience the art of tableaux vivants — or “living pictures” — at this year’s festival. In this type of display, actors and models depict a scene while remaining silent and motionless, as if in a picture. Particular emphasis is placed on staging, pose, costume, make-up, lighting and facial expression. The Sidewalk Arts Festival tableau vivant is created by SCAD staff, faculty and students.
