Let’s Chalk It Up to Peace!
Bank of America
466 N. La Brea Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90036
3-7 PM Saturday, September 12, 2009
CHALK4PEACE, a worldwide chalk art project now in its fourth year, puts chalk into the eager hands of children, and encourages them to express their thoughts on the theme of peace. Every September, across five continents and in over a hundred locations, each event invites all kids at heart to use their imagination to creatively convey the vision for a more peaceful planet. The Washington DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities commends the CHALK4PEACE project, which has been met with enthusiastic approval from many young artists who now look forward to doodling on pavements for all to see.
The event will include a Lemonade Shaved Ice and Snow Cone Stand hosted by Penmen Elite with donations benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation that seeks to find cures for cancer in children. And if you’re cleaning out your closet this summer, bring your shoes, clothing, and books that will go towards Helping Others Worldwide foundation, who will ship the items to needy orphanages in Sierra Leone, Africa. We will be entertaining all young chalkers with special live musical guests; including Drake Bell, The Deserters, Dirty Mercy and more. Yoga and crystal bowl healing by Gurutej will be offered to give you a peaceful relaxation. Water, chalk, treats and fun, fun, fun will be provided!
Arrive to the Miracle Mile Art Walk by Metro or DASH, and visit the participating galleries via the Holly Trolley, which runs the neighborhood starting at 4PM at La Brea and 1st Street for free! The night will continue on with some rocking after parties at various galleries providing free food, drinks, live music and Djs.
