Every year, SCAD students, alumni and high school students create magnificent chalk masterpieces in Forsyth Park for the annual Sidewalk Arts Festival. The colorful festival returns on April 28, 2018 from from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. with individuals and team competing to win prizes of up to $1,500. In addition to the sidewalk art, visitors can also see the art of tableaux vivants, or “living pictures” in which actors and models will silently depict a scene as if in a photo. Chalk distribution begins at 10 a.m., drawing at 11 a.m., with judging and results announced in the afternoon. For more information about SCAD’s Sidwalk Arts Festival, go to
