Art in the Park


Art in the Park, Northeast Florida’s ONLY Chalk Drawing competition, returns to @JamesWeldonJohnsonPark on Saturday, March 26th!

The theme for 2022 will be “My Wish for Jacksonville – Celebrating The Next 200 Years” in honor of Jacksonville’s upcoming bicentennial celebration.

Artists of all ages will have up to six hours to create a work of art entirely from chalk (chalk and tools will be provided to the participants). Visitors to the park will be able to watch the art happening right before their eyes, talk to the artists and vote on which ones they like best.

Once the allotted time is up, esteemed judges in the art community will visit each piece and vote on their favorites. Combined with the public vote, there will be first, second and third place prizes in three categories:

Main Artists, High School Student, and Middle School Student

This event is presented by @YaYaProductionsJax, Friends of James Weldon Johnson Park, and made possible through a generous grant from the PNC Foundation.

Only events occurring within Downtown Jacksonville will be accepted.
