So how does that make you feel?
I had a nice power lunch with the Tacoma Art Museum's Community Programs Coordinator, the lovely Ms. Melisa Jennings. We examined the proposed chalking area in front of the museum. Discussed the possibility of guerrilla expedition parties into tollefson (as to avoid any imperial entanglements). Said I would talk to my constituents and get back to her. She seemed pretty cool and would work with us to come up with strange and wonderful chalk-off prizes. A woolly mammoth from the David Macaulay exhibit or maybe a romantic evening with world famous illustrator/author David Macaulay himself.
I'm down. Anybody else want to join me in some quasi-illicit community chalk battle art?
emailed event details:

Ms. Jennings was going to supply the chalk (Hello Warren from Tacoma Art Supply!) I said Warren has some good vibrant colors. Also Cowboy charcoal for BBQ works great for black. Also crates of the cheap chalk from target are good for base colors...filler. I said nothing about glitter. You guys know how I feel about glitter.
Just hope it doesn't rain that day.

|Sounds like a good idea.
They are already familiar with the iron artist competition that some of the chalkies participated in last year.
Most would be promoters don't get it though and simply wish that chalk artists would show up in their neighborhood or event and start decorating the sidewalk as passerbys laxidasically step all over it.
In fact, the only outside entity/person who pulled off something with the success and energy even close to Frost Park was Robin who ran chalking event "Out in the Park."
Yet, the firepower of Frost Park with the institutional stability of TAM has a lot of potential.

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
