Chalk Festival Staff Pick

When: Sat., Sept. 14 2019
Over the past 28 years, the Cleveland Museum of Art's Chalk Festival has become one of the museum's most highly anticipated community art events. This weekend, the fun returns. The concept is based on a Renaissance tradition from Italy in which beggars copied paintings of the Madonna by Raphael and his contemporaries in chalk on the plazas outside cathedrals. Large squares (approximately 3-feet-by-4-feet of sidewalk) can be reserved for $20 (which includes a 24-color box of chalk); small squares (approximately 2-feet-by-3-feet) are $10 (and include a 12-color box of chalk). It all takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow, rain or shine. (Niesel)
