Carlsbad ArtSplash 2012, Another Big Success for the Arts in Carlsbad

 

Carlsbad ArtSplash,a 2-day extravaganza of art vendors, music, food and the ever-popular Chalk Art Contest, concluded today and was a huge success.

 

Carlsbad ArtSplash 2012

 

More than $42,000 was raised by Carlsbad ArtSplash to support the arts and music program in Carlsbad and North County schools.

 

This year I sponsored a chalk art square and was proud to have TOMMY FARRIAS, an artist from Chula Vista, as the sponsored chalk artist. I had a chance to view his creation up close today and to meet and talk with him.

What a honor to be part of this very successful non-profit organization that does such a great job of supporting the local arts and music programs.

Hi Jeff, I sure did want to get over your way to see this. But didn't make it once again. Thanks for sharing this great street art and your support of it. Well done!

William - well some day you will. At least you can enjoy it virtually.

Kerrie - indeed. Truly amazing. And it takes almost 2 days to complete these, sitting in the sun, on the concrete!

Jeff, the Carlsbad Artsplash really caught my attention...what a great fundraiser.  It has given me an idea of using the chalk square as an additional means of fundraising for some of the work we do here...great, great idea.

What an amazing sounding event... wish I were close enough to have attended. Love the chalk art... too bad it can't be preserved forever. Thanks for sharing this fun local event.
