The festival mixes artists and ideas, so there’s always plenty to see. “You’re not going to find something like this anywhere else in the state,” Schiavone promises. “You can walk around and talk to the artists as they’re creating the work, ask questions and take pictures, and you become part of the scene.”
At a pre-festival party on Friday, attendees watched artists prep their spaces and participated in a hands-on public art installation. Today the artists will be working on their temporary masterpieces, and tomorrow’s activities will include a yoga class. The Chalk Art Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow in Larimer Square. Admission is free; for more details, visit denverchalkart.com.
