Saturday, 20 April, 2013 | 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM
Chalk It UP! Prescott is a FREE community supported street painting event intended to cultivate and support the creativity in people of all ages and abilities. Everyone is welcome.
Inspired by the street painting artists of the Renaissance Era, Prescott’s fifth annual chalk festival will be held on Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 10 AM-4PM. The event is held at 201 N. Montezuma, Prescott, Arizona.
This festival brings an opportunity to experience the tradition of the I Madonnari street painters. In 16th century Italy beggars using chalk on the plazas outside cathedrals copied painting of the Madonna by Raphael and his contemporaries. Through these street painters an artistic tradition was born and continues today.
