Chalk FestivalSave the date now in your calendar for November 14 through 17th for the Chalk Festival being held in Downtown Venice this year.

Every year the festival has a theme and this year’s theme is “Extinct and Endangered Species”. The planet earth is now in the midst of its sixth mass extinction of plants and animals so the festival is celebrating these creatures and animals and raising awareness for those we are in danger of losing and for those already lost.

The artists use the pavement as their canvas and pastel chalk as their medium to create breathtaking oversized traditional and 3D illusionistic paintings. They use this theme as an inspiration to chalk colorful, interactive works of art. You can even converse with the artists as you admire their work as they love to interact with festival-goers.

Events will be held each night giving the public the opportunity to meet the artists in a social setting with music, dance, art, food and drink. For more information on directions and parking visit www.chalkfestival.org. Be sure to bring your camera to see the full 2D and 3D art come to life on your digital film.
