Mississippi State’s art department and the university’s Ladies Social Circle organization held the inaugural Great Chalk Walk event last Thursday in front of the department’s Visual Arts Center Gallery at 808 University Dr.

Participants of all ages created colorful, large-scale chalk art pieces to brighten one of the major thoroughfares leading to campus.

The event was one of many in the university’s 10th annual Dawg Daze program, 17 successive days of free activities to help welcome new freshmen and transfer students. A complete Dawg Daze schedule is available at

Funds for the event were provided by the Starkville Area Arts Council.
