Burnaby, B.C. – The 2nd annual Burnaby Chalk Art Experience will transform the pavement outside of Bonsor Recreation Complex into a colourful art gallery on June 16. This free event features the chalk art of everyone from youth to local and international street painters who create masterful works of art before your eyes.

This family-friendly event is the first of its kind in the Lower Mainland and includes live music, face painting and art activities, such as exploring clay and building bugs. This year’s featured entertainers are Bobs & Lolo, the award winning duo that is dedicated to connecting children to nature with music and movement.

“We are so pleased that Burnaby is home to this unique family event,” says Mayor Derek Corrigan. “It’s inspiring to see all of these talented artists bring our sidewalks to life with their diverse and very engaging artwork.”

Thirteen local and international artists will attend this year’s Burnaby Chalk Art Experience, including Everado Galvez, Scott Gillies, Taka Sudo, Sharyn Chan and Emily Gray.
