Attracting numerous students from multiple area art clubs, the Chalk Art Fest left a block of High Street covered in stars and stripes.

The annual competition, a part of the Connect to the Arts Festival, featured art clubs from Russellville, Jefferson City Academic Center, Simonsen 9th Grade Center, and Cedar Hill and West elementaries.
