Denver Chalk Art Festival

It's all about the pictures today and it's a long post even after culling what I think are the best exhibits of talent at the Denver Chalk Art Festival.

I had such a great time--even made new friends, Wendy and her son, who just moved here recently from El Paso, Texas. We met on the 16th Street Mall tram and stayed together through viewing all the chalkworks and a treat at Starbucks.Thanks Wendy.

Of course, it wouldn't be a complete photo shoot without a couple pups, so you'll stumble across them as you scroll down. Choosing a best is almost impossible. I wonder who the winner will be. Maybe one I didn't even capture. I do love the ones with the artists in action. ;->

So, here's the chalk art roll! Sadly, I don't have the names of the artists else I would give the credit well deserved.




























This last image is a sculpture by Bill Starke at the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building on Colfax Avenue in downtown Denver.

You can see them all on black by clicking any one image.

Thanks for coming to visit.
Have a great week, my friends.

  1. I recognize that sculpture! I have a picture of it too lol!

    What fabulous art you have captured...such talent. I wonder though, how long the images will last. It seems with one nice rainfall, the chalk art will be washed away...what a sad thought. Temporary beauty...
