Sponsor An Artist

The Denver Chalk Art Festival features more than 200 professional, amateur and student artists from around the country—with a majority being from Colorado. Participation is free for all artists and pastels are provided at no cost to them. For that reason, artist sponsorship is critical to ensure a successful event.

Sponsor an 8′ x 8′ piece of art for $400 or one of the larger Mural or 3D pieces for $900. Payments are 100% tax-deductible; proceeds go towards funding the Larimer Arts Association, a 501.c.3 non-profit organization. Click on the “Sponsor an Artist” button below to get started!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Do you need my logo?

A: No, your artist will custom chalk your business name in a way that will stand out yet stay with the theme of the event.


Q: Do I need to recruit an artist?

A: No, we have an artist selection process and will pair you with one of our artists.


Q: Can I chose which artist I am paired with?

A: Probably! Ask us after the artist selection process is complete (early April) and we will send you a link to view artist images that are available to sponsor.


Q: What if I want to be paired with a certain artist?

A: This year’s artist application deadline has passed, so pairing is limited to those artists who are juried into the show. Go ahead and request the artist you are hoping for but we are not able to make guarantees at this time.


Q: Can I coordinate with the artist on the image?

A: No, in order to keep the integrity of the event, we do not dictate the content of the artwork.
