Visit our Chalk Garden!
Suncoast Arts Fest will once again feature the brilliant works of the region’s top professional street artists at its Chalk Garden in front of Dillard’s department store. Throughout the festival weekend, crowds can watch local artists use simple chalk to transform the sidewalks at Wiregrass into stunning 2-D and 3-D works of art. Join in the fun, and vote for your favorite mural!
Using a tradition that dates back to 16th century Italy, this is true performance art, where the process of creating the work is even more important than the finished piece. For the artists, the conversation with spectators can be as rewarding as creating their masterpieces. People can view the work in all stages of progress, from layout and design, to applying colors, to the finished creation.
