Oberlin is a city for the arts. Please come and visit us, whether to just walk around and enjoy the scene or get down on your knees and create your own work of art during this free event.
The Oberlin Chalk Walk is a festive colorful event that celebrates the tradition of sidewalk painting that began in 16th century Italy. Professional master artists and several local artists create works of art on pavement all over town. Sidewalks from the Allen Art Museum to the Public Library and from the college bookstore to the Hotel at Oberlin will be available for children and adults to use as "canvases" to make their own sidewalk creations. Join us for a day of artistic fun for people of all ages and skill levels! Artist credit for chalk creation: Beth Wolosz
