CHESTERTON | Frontline Foundations, Inc., a nonprofit substance abuse treatment program for young adults, is looking for artists and vendors to participate in its second annual Hooked on Art — Live Street Art Festival. The annual event, to support client treatment scholarships, will be Sept. 28 at Thomas Centennial Park.

Participating artists will be asked to perform a live work of art from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in front of the festival crowd.

"Hooked on Art is an excellent festival for local artists to sell their art work and gain publicity regarding their craft," said Derek Frazier, Frontline development director. "Leading up to the event we plan on marketing our Live Street Artists in numerous promotional pieces and social media to generate excitement for the festival."

Participating artists also can get a free 10-foot by 10-foot vendor booth space.

"Nationally recognized chalk artists Nancy Pochis Bank and Jennifer Chaparro will be attending the festival and creating their own unique works of art," said Frazier. "By providing free materials we hope to encourage more artists to chalk the streets with striking art."

To apply, visit or call (219) 728-1638. Vendor space is available for $40.
