Chalk the Walk

Event Detail
Date: Saturday, May 4th
Time: 10:00 am-Sunday, May 5th 6:00 pm

2019 is the 14th anniversary of Iowa’s largest-ever Madonnari Festival, Chalk the Walk. Cornell is a sponsor of this major Mount Vernon festival featuring the work of over 500 artists of all ages and abilities using the street as their canvas. Each year a large collaborative piece of chalk art is recreated and in 2019 it will be a larger-than-life version of Ukrainian artist Veronika Demenko’s colorful piece titled “Woodstock.” For a $10 donation to the festival, any interested festival participant will be given a set of chalk sticks and create a single 2’ by 2’ square of a portion of the image.
