Slate Valley Museum to host chalk art fest
The third annual Chalk Art Festival takes place Aug. 4, from 7 to 9 p.m., presented by the Slate Valley Museum, 17 Water St., Granville.
Youths, K-grade 12, can design chalk art on the museum’s sidewalks, slate stones, or slate “canvases.” A panel of jurors will select winning artworks in three age groups, each of which will win art prizes.
Participation is free. Light refreshments will be available for everyone.

The Slate Valley Museum celebrates the history and culture of the quarrying community that was established along the New York-Vermont border in the 1800s. Many of the Slate Valley quarries are still in operation, producing most of the colored roofing slate sold throughout the United States today.
The Slate Valley Museum is open year-round: Tuesday through Friday: 1 to 5 p.m.;
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.;
Closed Sunday and Monday.
Take a scenic drive through the foliage and local slate quarries; visit http://www.slatevalleymuseum.org/slate-valley-driving-tour.html/. The two-hour tour starts at the Slate Valley Museum and loops back to Granville after covering the heart of the Slate Valley through New York and Vermont.
