Street Painting Festival

Since 2000, the Rotary Club of Oak Ridge has sponsored the annual Oak Ridge Street Painting Festival. The purpose of this festive occasion is to raise money for scholarships for students at Roane State Community College, thus helping provide an educated workforce for businesses moving to our region. The festival allows local artists of all ages to showcase their talents and provides a fun time for the Oak Ridge community. In the past 21 years, your generous donations have allowed Roane State to award more than 100 scholarships totaling over $200,000!

HeART For Heroes

The theme for this year’s event is HeART For Heroes. We wanted a topic that would be multifaceted – all the while appropriate for the current environment we are living in, inspirational for our artists, and certainly not least a heartfelt gesture to honor the heroes of the COVID-19 global pandemic. The logo for the theme details chalk aligned to create the word ART, as part of the greater HeART. We hope you will be motivated by the amazing talent that is displayed at our event!

Artists that create chalk art clearly inspired by the Heart for Heroes theme will take part in a chance to win a bonus prize of $25.
