Chalk/street painters, from master artists to youth and families, will transform the pavement into a collection of vibrant, colorful, large scale images. These designs will include images reflective of Visions –Changing Landscapes theme as well as abstract art, 3D images, and portraitures.
Public engagement will be a key component of this festival. It will be a place where the community can come out and see art being made and artists can demonstrate their process from beginning to end. In contrast to viewing a finished product in a studio. Artists will benefit from this festival by being provided space to showcase their work and the community can engage by asking questions and learning from the artists.
It is our intent to showcase local, regional, and national artistic talent. With our focus being threefold –support youth art education, spur economic activity, and bring culture, community, and creativity to our beautiful downtown. We believe our festival will become another signature event such as the Mad Hatter Parade or Second Friday Art Walk and help to promote our downtown as a destination for the arts.
