Due to thunderstorms currently in the Savannah area Sidewalk Arts Festival has been cancelled.
We know this is a disappointment to hundreds in the SCAD and Savannah community, but safety is always our top priority. Due to the torrential forecast, it would be unsafe for artists to try and create chalk work throughout Forsyth Park.
Because the park is a public space and several events are already scheduled, there are currently no plans to reschedule Sidewalk Arts for the year.
There’s still the Sand Arts Festival on Tybee Island to look forward to, set for Friday, May 1. Hundreds of SCAD artists will take to the warm North Beach of the island to craft sand sculptures under a (hopefully) warm Georgia sky. If a forecast predicts similar bad weather for that day, Sand Arts will be moved to Friday, May 8.http://www.scad.edu/event/2015-05-01-spend-day-beach-annual-scad-sand-arts-festival
