News from the Sidewalk

CHALK4PEACE is the global chalk art project about peace. We celebrate our eleventh year as a worldwide event encouraging peace. CHALK4PEACE, Inc.  is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization.

We've had more than 1000 events in 50 countries and have covered more than 12 miles of pavement with messages and visions of peace in sidewalk chalk...

We believe in  "Drawing the World Together..."

CHALK4PEACE participated in the Peace Day Student Observance at the United Nations in New York City in 2016 to honor the International Day of Peace. Hundreds of thousands of young artists of all ages have joined us since 2005.

Our goal: ONE MILLION artists Chalking 4 Peace at the same time...

Because we need Peace...Now more than ever...

CHALK4PEACE at the Lighthouse ArtCenter, Tequesta, FL 9/16/17

Hurricane Irma couldn't slow the progress of CHALK4PEACE at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL as Master Street Painter and Arts Organizer extraordinaire Jennifer Chaparro teamed up with her photojournalist husband Craig Houdeshell and the Lighthouse ArtCenter to hold their first CHALK4PEACE event for the community. After Jennifer fashioned a 60 foot peace symbol, some 70 young artists of all ages stopped by to make their mark for peace less than a week after Irma's hundred mile an hour winds blew through town. These exquisite photos document this wonderful resiliency and creativity; and we look forward to working with our friends from Florida more in the future. Click on the photos to see the slideshow.
