Sidewalk Chalk Square Patrons

Align your business or organization with Sacramento artists by becoming a patron of the Chalk it Up! Festival.

Become a Square Patron

Square Patrons will collaborate with an artist to create a chalk square masterpiece in front of a business, at a residence, or in a neighborhood park. As a Square Patron, you can bring your own artist or request to be matched with one of our volunteer artists. The location must be determined in advance to be included in our virtual map.

  • Square Patron’s name will be in 6” tall letters on the bottom of their art square unless another arrangement has been made between the artist and the Square Patron
  • Each Square Patron will be listed on our virtual map, including a link to the organization or business’s website

Your Artist

Each Square Patron will be matched with a volunteer artist. However, if you already have an artist ready to go, please include that information on the Sponsorship Form below.

  • If providing an artist, that artist must register as an artist on the Chalk It Up website
  • If you have specific preferences on art style or image indicate those preferences on the form or contact sponsors@chalkitup.org for consideration
