Reston, VA

Chalkfest 2014There are still spaces open for artists — young, grown, amateur and professional — to enter the Initiative for Public Art Reston (IPAR’s) 2016 ChalkFest.

ChalkFest, where artists create murals on the pavement on Market Street, takes place at Reston Town Center on Sept. 9 and 10.

There will be prizes for professional artists, amateur artists, families and kids, in addition to the “Audience Choice Awards.”
