Chalk the Walk 3D street art exhibit earns extension

Due to popular demand, the much-loved Chalk the Walk 3D street art gallery will remain in place until the end of the school holidays.

Over six big days, the team featuring several gifted artists hit the streets to brighten Darby Street and the Newcastle CBD.

“The event’s always well-received and this year is no different,” producer Danielle Littlewood said.

“The 2023 theme, All Creatures Great and Small, certainly brought Newcastle to life again.

“It featured everything from a frog pond at Kuwumi Place to a larger-than-life spider on Hunter Street.

“Or, people could snap a selfie with some Aussie celebrities at the Visitor Information Centre or skateboard with Chalkie the Chihuahua in Civic Park.

“And, because of its success and the positive feedback we’ve received, people can explore Chalk the Walk from now until Saturday 8 October.

“Also, after listening to local comments over the past two years, we’ve made one exhibit permanent.

“Newcastle’s first perpetual 3D pavement will be located outside Harry’s Cade de Wheels on the Market Street lawn.

“So, step into the art, become part of the illusion and share your magic moments using #NewCTW2023.

“Check out Chalk the Walk before it disappears.”
