The Savannah College of Art and Design's annual Sidewalk Arts Festival in Savannah GA draws thousands of visitors each year to view temporary chalk masterpieces created by SCAD students, alumni and prospective students on the sidewalks of historic Forsyth Park.

The event has been the cornerstone of SCAD's spring activities and marks it's 30th Anniversary in 2011 and features a chalk art competition, children's drawing areas for young artists, food, drinks and music.

The participants will be judged for first, second and third place monetary prizes. The artists represent many areas of study from animation to architecture in the three categories of student, alumni and prospective student.

The Sidewalk Arts festivities will be kicked off by Films in Forsyth, SCAD's outdoor film series for the SCAD and Savannah communities. "Goonies" will be screened on Thursday April 28, 2011 and "Toy Story 3" will be shown on Friday, April 29, 20011. Both movies begin at dusk, around 8pm.
