Chalk the Lot – Chalk Art Event at DeNooyer Chevrolet 

As the weather gets warmer and the sun is shining, color is brought  back into the world. DeNooyer Chevrolet wants to do just that with their first ever Chalk the Lot event. Ryan DeNooyer, General Manager, says of the event “DeNooyer Chevrolet believes in supporting families and the community and this event is aimed at doing just that. It has been a  hard year for everyone, and we thought this event could safely bring families and people  throughout our community together and give additional support to one of the great artistic  organizations in greater Kalamazoo.”

Members of the community are welcome to stop by the DeNooyer Chevrolet dealership,  located on Stadium Drive, on Saturday June 12th, 2021 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. to watch live chalk  art being created. The art will also be available (weather permitting) for viewing until Friday,  June 18th, when the People’s Choice Award will then be announced and on our social media  pages.

Registered artists will be showcasing their work and creating one-of-a-kind pieces of art during this time, using chalk, on the dealership’s lot.
