Join Me! June 8th for World Oceans Day to follow up on the Earth Day promos we did on – Saturday, April 8 and April 22nd

Navy Pier and Shedd Aquarium Join Forces with Chicago Chalk Champ, Shaun Hays, to celebrate World Oceans Day (June 8th) with a pop-up style Chalk Art Fest in Polk Brothers Park From 10-2pm. Come out and try your hand at sidewalk chalk for free and add your art to the chalk board kiosk when you commit to #sheddthestraw in 2017!

(Edited Post from earlier this spring) “I am very excited to announce that I am working with the John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago to launch an important awareness campaign this Earth Day.
(It was fun, and an amazing success, so we are going to do this again for World Oceans Day!)

Did you know that single-use plastic straws are a bigger ocean pollutant than disposable water bottles?? I had no idea. I think it is good to take care of our home, so I am pledging to #sheddthestraw, and on April 8th I will be chalking in Polk Brothers Park in front of Navy Pier, Chicago from 10-2 to help Shedd Aquarium spread the word.  (Edit: June 8th at Navy Pier – Again!!)

So, come out to help us chalk up the Polk Brothers Park with sea life and love! You can watch me, the #chicagochalkchamp, render some magnificent animals affected by the plastics in our oceans and then join us again on April 22nd from 10-2pm between the Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum for a repeat performance. 

Visitors to each location will participate in the chalk artwork, so bring your creativity and help us #sheddthestraw this #earthday (and now, #WorldOceansDay ) with some #chicagopublicart featuring the #chicagochalkchamp. “
