Cesar Chavez by Selena
These chalk festivals bring out a pleasant crowd. This is the third consecutive i have attended at the Cleveland Art Museum. You can check my archives, i should not bother putting in links that are not used.

Yesterday, there was constant rain in the morning, and that naturally deterred people from coming and coloring. The last couple years a construction fence had blocked off some of this area. This year a spacier feeling was apparent. In the tent, a group was playing pre-rock popular music. People did some swing dancing, young people dancing to some of the music their grandparents, and great-grandparents would have.

  Melozzo da Forlì. Triumphant Christ. 1481-3. Rome.
The artists were in good mood, this brings out happy people. A woman was drawing a copy of  supra (originally a fresco), needlessly apologised for her chalking ability, she was used to painting watercolors. In an hour she had this much done.
