ArtLit22 Call to Chalk Artists

On Saturday, January 15th, 2022 from 12 pm – 5 pm Pompano Beach Library, in collaboration with Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department, will be presenting the 5th annual ArtLit 2022 festival.

This year’s ArtLit theme is Drawing Together. This Call for Artists seeks Adult and Teen Chalk Artists to honor and celebrate this year’s theme and featured book.

ArtLit 2022 is this library’s signature event and is the Broward County Library system’s kick-off event for the National Endowment of the Arts’ (NEA) Big Read Program: a national literacy program. The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui has been chosen as the Big Read featured title. The book is a graphic memoir about the lasting effects of one family’s escape from war-torn Vietnam in the 1970s to a new life in America and the universal challenges of becoming a new parent.

Please email artlit@broward.org by November 30, 2021 with a 150-word description of your Chalk Artwork that you would like to present during ArtLit 2022.
