Temporary Art 

Last year's inaugural Chalk Walk Festival in the historic Northeast drew more than 2,500 attendees, putting a spin on the tradition of 16th-century European street painting and benefiting the youth arts organization Mosaic Brain. With a goal of 100 chalk "squares," the festival is anchored by four major works — completed by a seasoned professional, a street artist, an emerging talent and an intergenerational organization (last year's was a school). Organizers say there is still room for last-minute applications. "A lot of people that aren't from the neighborhood were amazed by the historic feel and beauty," says Wolfgang Bucher, who, with Bryan Jordan, co-founded Mosaic Brain. "And we had one attendee thank us for not creating another blush box-wine event." This free event takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Sunday at the Concourse at Kessler Park (200 South Benton Boulevard). See chalkwalk.org for more information.
Sat., April 25, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., April 26, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., 2009
