Over 7,000 educators, students, and community members have contributed 701 one-of-a-kind chalk murals on Houston Street and Main Avenue alongside Artpace’s international resident and exhibiting artists from the San Antonio community and abroad.


For its 17th iteration, Artpace San Antonio invites school and community groups to participate in Chalk It Up 2020 and work collaboratively to complete original chalk murals representative of the 2020 theme: COMMUNITY.




  • This year, registration is free and open to any school or community group within Bexar County serving San Antonio residents and residents of other municipalities within the San Antonio area. A community group may be a college, university, cultural, or nonprofit organization.
