    Chalk It Up 2017

    Bring your family and friends to the 14th annual Artpace Chalk It Up, a free festival of contemporary art that transforms Downtown Houston Street into a gallery – from the ground up. 


    Artpace Chalk It Up turns seven blocks in Downtown San Antonio into a chalk canvas, showcasing local emerging artists and raising funds for art education. Chalk It Up encourages everyone to become an artist for a day as we work on a collaborative city block-sized mural. Take part in hands-on activities like screen printing, chalk spirographs, and more! Additionally, local schools, universities, and non-profits are invited to play a significant role at Chalk It Up by creating an original design together as members of Team Works. Registration for Team Works is available at


     - PUBLIC MURALS - Artists from all walks of life create murals about their organizations and businesses along Houston Street, led by the San Antonio Museum of Art. 

     - FEATURED & EMERGING ARTISTS - Our Featured and Emerging artists are always selected locally—they’re some of the city’s best, and play a prominent role in the success and enjoyment of Chalk It Up, creating compelling, original murals on Houston Street sidewalks.

     - FOOD TRUCKS - Some of San Antonio’s finest mobile restauranteurs will park their food trucks along Houston Street to offer fresh local food to hungry chalk artists of all ages.

     - LIVE MUSIC - The Artpace Chalk It Up stage across from the Majestic Theater features live music from a range of local musical artists. 

     - FREESTYLE - Let your creative genius run wild in our Freestyle Zones. We’ll provide buckets of chalk and plenty of blank canvas in the form of Houston Street; you bring the artwork. 

    This year, corprations and local businesses can get in on the fun too. Register for the Chalk It Up Corporate Competition at
