CHALK-TACULAR: An Art Project to Reclaim Dan Paul Park

CHALK-TACULAR: An Art Project to Reclaim Dan Paul ParkSaturday, August 8, 1pm-4pm – Dan Paul Park, 601 Biscayne Blvd, Miami

Join hundreds of students, families and local artists who will team up with Engage Miami and a coalition of Miami-based community groups to send a very big message to the Miami-Dade County Commissioners and the Miami Heat. A massive 3-acre chalk drawing will cover the asphalt that covers the infamous Parcel B, site of the promised world-class waterfront park that was part of the campaign used to persuade voters to pass the referendum in favor of building the AA Arena in 1996. To drive home the message. event organizers are striving to win a Guinness World Record for the largest collection of independent chalk drawings done in a single setting. The current record of 308 drawings is held by a group in Toyama, Japan.  #Chalktacular @UELofMiami @EmergeMiami
