Since 2004, Artpace’s Chalk It Up TeamWorks has involved over 8,800 educators, students, and community members, contributing 772 one-of-a-kind chalk murals across San Antonio and Downtown on the Chalk It Up footprint.
For its 20th year, Artpace San Antonio invited teams to participate in Chalk It Up 2023 and work collaboratively to complete original chalk murals representative of the theme: Dream Big!
TeamWorks was open to any school or community group serving San Antonio-area residents. Local businesses, nonprofits, and community members were encouraged to participate as community groups. We are happy to announce the 2023 TeamWorks winners! Congratulations to all that participated. We saw amazing interpretations of this years theme.

Some schools participated in Chalk It Up through our Across San Antonio category of the TeamWorks competition. These schools participated remotely by creating unique murals at their school and submitting images and statements for the judges. See what our Across San Antonio teams created this year by watching the video below (or here on your mobile device)!
In honor of the 20th Anniversary of this beloved festival, Featured Artists and TeamWorks groups will create murals based on this year’s theme, Dream Big! Artpace’s founder Linda Pace created Artpace as a “laboratory of dreams” where artists around the world can create. Artpace decided to embrace and honor Linda’s dream by making dreams the focal point of this year’s festival.
