Masterpieces Will Be Underfoot at the 2017 Chalk Walk

October 4, 2017 1:01 pm

You may not realize that the city streets of Round Rock are actually one big canvas, but every year, the Chalk Walk makes it perfectly clear that the pavement is the perfect place for art. Artists from all around the area bring a bucket of chalk and claim a slice of the street, then start creating. The 2017 Chalk Walk is coming up on October 6th and 7th, and since admission is free, you won't want to miss it.

In previous years, artists have drawn stunningly life-like murals of a tiger emerging from flames, of the Round Rock water tower set against a beautiful sunset, and even an enormous depiction of a monstrous sea creature gnawing through a bridge. This year, expect to see even more original works, as well as recreations of some well-known pieces by famous artists. In addition to enjoying the art, you can also grab some dinner from a food truck, drink in some live music, and check out live performances.
