INSTRUCTIONS: Decide on an art project, any media; take your supplies to a public place and get people to help you with it.

Some of my friends decided to have a flash mob chalking event at my school just for the sake of chalking. We got the word out via forwarding texts. There was chalk left in designated areas for people to join in on our chalking adventures across campus.

Just earlier this month, chalking on campus - even for promotional events - was deemed a violation. Students caught chalking would be subject to a $50 fine. Read the article here.

I don't understand. Chalk is simply dust. It can be easily washed or smeared away even by natural causes. It's not spray paint. It's not permanent. Most students use judgment for what's appropriate when chalking. And nobody was chalking inappropriate messages on our campus either, so I don't see why the university would take away our chalking right.

I guess this was our way of sticking it to the man.
