About the Ampersand Boards

The Round Rock Arts Council will provide qualifying artists Ampersand boards. Selection is competitive and limited. Only 20 boards will be available. All boards, and the art associated with the boards, become the property of Round Rock Arts for its closing art auction or subsequent sales.

  1. The boards/art will be auctioned off at the end of the event. Each piece that sells will bring profit to the artist at a 50% artist /50% RRA split. All artwork done on Ampersand boards becomes the property of the Round Rock Arts Council. It is mandatory that all artwork created on these boards become a part of the auction.
  2. If a board does not sell, it remains the property of RRA. In the event that it sells after Chalk Walk, the artist will receive 50% of the proceeds of such sale.
  3. Sizes of the board will be 30′ x 36′.  You can still use the street if you wish as an extension of the boards.
  4. Boards need to stay on site.
  5. You must indicate on your registration form that you are interested in being considered as a focused artist and submit the required number of images in the required size (1.4 MB each). Submitting images larger than this may result in incomplete registrations.
  6. A committee will review submissions and confirm the Ampersand board and size. AGAIN, ONLY 20 INDIVIDUALS WILL RECEIVE AMPERSAND BOARDS.  Please do not contact us for confirmation. We will inform you if you have or have not been selected to receive an Ampersand board.
