Artpace invites the public to grab a piece of chalk and let imaginations run wild at the 10th annual Chalk It Up festival.

The festival is 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday on historic downtown Houston Street between North Main Avenue and Jefferson Street.

Organizers expect to draw more than 20,000 people.

This year’s Chalk It Up features artists Jordan Henry, Matthew Eric Mendez, Lili Dyer, Kevin Rayhons, Antonia Richardson, Tommy Hopkins, Amanda Claire Miller, Pedro Luera, Jessica Garcia and Nemo & Hannah.

Chalk It Up is sponsored by Artpace, an art center promoting the importance of art education.

Artist, collector and businesswoman Linda Pace founded Artpace, and the center opened in 1995, providing artists with an environment encouraging experimentation and growth, according to the center’s website.
