SCAD Sidewalk Arts Festival
April 24, 2010

Gray's Reef
Fantastic Fishes Awards

The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) held its 29th Annual Sidewalk Arts Festival on Saturday, April 24, 2010 in Forsyth Park. Visitors viewed temporary chalk masterpieces created by SCAD students, alumni and prospective students on the walkways of the historic park in Savannah, GA.

For the sixth year, Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary sponsored a separate category in the festival. The Gray's Reef Fantastic Fishes Award seeks to encourage student artists to find inspiration in the marine environment. With an emphasis on whimsy and biologically accuracy, Gray's Reef promotes art as another way to engage the public on marine issues through non-traditional educational means.
