The first year we had about 20 artists, a small stage with three bands. It was a little one-day event. We have now grown to over forty artists, many from out of state, six bands, two different stages.
Since I moved to Columbus, Ohio, a couple of years ago, as things started opening up from the pandemic, I started immersing myself into the art scene here. I have been taking part in as many art events as I can
There is a common theme in my work. It is usually a bonding relationship between humans and animals, especially dogs.
Finding out that this is an event that I can do. I like talking to people, being here all day and seeing people walk by and admire my work.
I have done it for years. I have worked at Via Colori as a charter artist many years ago.
I love it! That is what I think is so great about this opportunity. I tell this to my students, too. Art is not something that hangs and you look at. It can be something that you interact with.
I love this event! Even though I missed the opportunity to experience the art being creating live and only talked to one artist, I still enjoyed the art. The experience brought back fond memories of years past, being able to watch the artist create live, interact with the artists, and interact with those enjoying the art.
I love this event! I agree with Thom Glick. The addition of the 8’ chalk cubes “pulls people into the event.”
Why chalk art?
Because it’s fun. It’s pretty. It is something that you must capture in the moment. You must see it in person.
