Pavement Art Finds Its Way To St. Augustine
A 450th Celebration Signature Event!
The art of street painting goes all the way back to 16th century Italy, when traveling artists were brought to the cities to work on the cathedrals. When their work was done, the artists would recreate their church paintings on the pavement. They would travel to the saint festivals in the villages and cities, hoping for enough tips to live on!
Today, "chalk art" has become quite popular and really brings that “wow” factor both its artists and its fans. Join 70+ artists for St. Augustine’s 1st Annual Paseo Pastel Chalk Walk Festival from March 22-24, 2013. The artists will set up shop on the sidewalk between the City Parking Garage and the Visitors Information Center at 10 West Castillo Drive. The theme? St. Augustine heritage! The canvas? A 4 x 6 sidewalk spot!
