Baguio City to Fill Session Road With 1,000 Works of Chalk Art

They're attempting to break a world record!

(SPOT.ph) December 8 saw a total of 721 pieces of chalk art decorating Session Road, thanks to The Chalk Brigade. It was Baguio City's attempt to break Germany's world record for having the largest display of chalk art. The UNESCO-declared Creative City may have failed the first time, but they're hoping to have as many as 1,000 pieces of chalk art in April 2020 and beat the current world-record tally of 944 drawings. To prepare for this, Eudaimonia Art Gallery is calling on more artists to join their next chalk art drawing sessions on December 15 and 22 at 7 a.m.

The total number of chalk art pieces tallied on December 8 was 721. They're hoping to reach 1,000 in April 2020.

"Every Sunday or every time Session Road is closed, the people of Baguio create chalk art on their own. It has become a tradition and since we've been doing this for so long and people have the initiative to do so, why don't we take it to the next level and make a world record?" Zelle Fermin of Eudaimonia tells SPOT.ph. Her group provides exhibit opportunities for aspiring artists, especially those based in Baguio, as well as providing an avenue for self-expression and self-exploration—and chalk art is an example of this artistic medium.

Baguio artists and groups are encouraged to join The Chalk Brigade once again in the coming Sundays.

They're calling on art groups and individuals all over Baguio City and even neighboring towns in Benguet to participate in this fun-filled activity in the coming weekends.

The Chalk Brigade is on December 15 and 22, 7 a.m. at Session Road, Baguio City, Benguet. For more information, follow Eudaimonia on Facebook.
