Kwee, what an amazing event! I always admire the chalk artists, they work and produce beautiful art and the next rain washes it all away.

That would be a really cool thing to see.  Those artists have a lot of talent and it must me hard to spend all that time on a piece just to have it wash away when it rains.  I hope you'll get some pictures of the finished products.

This is a really neat event. At first I thought it was kids with chalk...we do that here for our Applefest. But NO. This is a serious thing. I would love to see this.

Hi Kwee,

looks like a lot of fun and it always amazes me how they can draw on the cement with basic chalk and make the picture jump off the ground and look 3 dimensional. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Kwee, I haven't been to a chalk art event.  This 6-day event with 500 artists sounds like a fun time to be out in about in Sarasota FL.
