As part of Adelphi University’s Ephemeral exhibition, the Long Island community is invited to join students, faculty and staff in “chalking up” the campus with images and text. Multicolored chalk will be supplied to participants. All ages are welcome.  (Rain date: October 9, 2013)

Make the longest hopscotch board in the world!
Cover the earth with poetry!
Draw to your heart’s content!

  • What does a proposal look like?  It could be as simple as “We want to make a giant psychedelic snail” to “We wish to transcribe 20 Emily Dickinson poems.” 
  • Projects that allow short-term, “drop-in” contributions are ideal. 
  • Proposals are due Friday, September 13, 2013.  
  • Accepted proposals will be notified by September 23, 2013. 
  • Chalk will be provided for all participants.
