Sidewalk Chalk Day | NEW/NOW: Shantell Martin

Did you know that famous artists use sidewalk chalk to create art?

Our current NEW/NOW artist Shantell Martin uses chalk and paint to create works on pavement! Visit Shantell Martin’s exciting exhibition upstairs for inspiration and then head outside to create your own masterpiece or inspiring message on the hardtop outside of the Museum. 

All New Britain residents and families are free; we will be taking photos of our visitors and their sidewalk masterpieces to share on our FB page.

Timed reservations are required at so we can maintain social distancing and plan for art supplies; start times are limited to 15 individuals per 15 minutes to guarantee plenty of safe distancing. Please call the Museum if you need assistance making a reservation.

A face mask covering your nose and mouth is required to enter the Museum. Thank you!
