Winona Fine Arts Commission Chalk the Walk

The Winona Fine Arts Commission launches the Winona Chalk the Walk program for City of Winona residents. Through this program, the Fine Arts Commission strives to provide a creative and fun outlet for the community by offering high-quality art education and accessible materials for all ages in this time of crisis. Residents can sign up to receive a pack of sidewalk chalk and lesson plans created by Winona Creative Laureate, Sarah Johnson, land local art-educators Briana Haupt and Holly Al-Abad.

The Commission also hopes to connect residents through this shared but safe activity, and to encourage them to spend time outdoors, and to bring attention to the power of art as a therapeutic mechanism for the effects of having to "Shelter in Place."

The Chalk the Walk packets are being offered while supplies last and will be delivered safely to the outside of your home after you sign up by going to the website WINONArts.com and clicking on the CHALK THE WALK link or using the form link here: https://forms.gle/qbTStDES9tgUnF437

The Fine Arts Commission strives to engage the Winona Community through shared community art involvement during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Commission is asking those who utilize these resources share photos of their projects with the community via social media using the hashtag #WinonaChalktheWalk and #winonachalkthewalk. Chalk the Walk participants are also invited to share photos of their work to be shared on the Fine Arts Commission Facebook page and the new WINONArts website (WINONArts.com). Send JPEG formatted pictures to Lee Gundersheimer, Arts and Culture Coordinator, at lgundersheimer@ci.winona.mn.us.

The City of Winona is a partner of the River Arts Alliance.
