Attention Chalkers!

The last big festival of the summer

Hello my fabuloso chalk-tabulous friends. I was wondering if you guys
would be interested in doing some chalk signage on the ground the morning
of Sept. 6th in Ruston for Point Defiance Music Fest? We could also do it the night before (Friday night) and make a party out of it. Voxxy Vallejo will be loading in the night before so maybe we could even have music entertainment!

The festival has 4 music stages and they are all within a block of eachother. We have the street blocked off for the whole day so I thought it would be fun if we could direct people to the stages with fancy chalk art on the street. You could just put the stage name and some arrows or do a yellow brick road type pathway or whatever you guys think would look cool. Maybe we could even incorporate some of the  band names? If you let me know in advance what you'll need I could go and buy the chalk for you so you don't have to use your own.

What do you say? Can we do this? I might be able to dig up some "color in
between the lines" helpers for you too.

Aside from the big giant free concert featuring 27 of the best bands in the area, (rock, country blues and acoustic stages), you should also check out the following:

* Desiree Flerchinger, Mary Kay Johnson and Linda Lapping-DeSantis will be painting live during the festival.
* Point Defiance Zoo is setting up a booth where they will be bringing out some animals to show festival goers.
* Carnival Time will bring out several carnival games (like at the fair) and bounce houses for the kiddies.
* Festival goers will be able to paint clay objects and then the F.I.N.E. Mudhens and Clay Art Center will do live raku firing.
* Darrren Selector will DJ outside Point Defiance Casino.

What's in it for you, you ask?

Hmmm, well first I will buy you beer (if you are old enough to drink it - otherwise I'll buy you a can of Green River instead).

Second I will help you wash down Frost Park next week. I will scrub scrub scrub until my little fingers bleed. And I'll make my daughter help too so there'll be two of us helping.

Third I will exalt your name to the skies via PA system at the festival and thank you profusely in public.

Fourth I will name my next pet after you (I'm not having any more children, the first one's costing me a fortune).

Fifth, I will arrange another music concert for you at Frost Park by one of my super talented musical peers.

Is that enough incentive?

Angela:

You are introducing a great idea for Frost Park chalkies - employed by artists over the centuries (or something like that) - the idea of trading their talent for services, other artwork etc. Great idea!

Perhaps the idea could evolve into something for future winners of the competition too.

Also worth mentioning, a film crew will be at the festival filming for a documentary called "Inside The Indie." Your chalk art would be in a movie!

I'll bet I can talk my daughter into taking on a chalk drawing with me...I believe she worked wth your daughter down at Frost a couple weeks ago...TSOTA kid?

We'll certainly be down at the festival in any event.

Nice work Angela!!! We are looking forward to it!!
I think we might owe YOU a beer!

Thanks Angela for bring some considerable goods to the table. Having a beer with Angela Jossy is almost incentive enough in itself.

Question: if multiple people help out, will you name your next pet after all of them? Or will you get enough pets to name one after each?

Interesting question, I suppose I could buy a school of fish and give each one of them a chalk-star name. I hope my problem is too many names! That would be awesome.

Anyone interested should report to the parking lot outside Totem Yacht Club in Ruston Friday night at 7 pm. This is where the load-in party begins. Voxxy Vallejo may grace us with a few Joplin inspired numbers. Beverages will be available.

However! I do need some RSVP action so I know if I should invest in chalk and what sort of chalk is preferred.

I was at Fred Meyer tonight and I bought a tub of crayola chalk but I'm thinking I need to buy some of the good stuff from Tacoma Art Supply and maybe some cowboy?

I'm still not sure who's coming but in my head I have some Life of Elle style magic dancing around in my imagination with some Dawntown/Stowe/RR lettering around it.

Also, I might be getting some big ole chalk boards from a closed school for you guys to play with. They are heavy though and I'll need some help moving them.

Kathy - thanks! Jesse and I look forward to seeing you!

Hi Angela...
Katie is out for Friday night (club Adrian committment) but we will see ya fer sure on Saturday!
Can we chalk some then? Maybe early-ish?

by AngelaJossy on 9/4/2008 @ 10:36pm
Sure! We're closing down the street at 7 am so any time after that is fair game.
