We can walk on them, dine on them (well, maybe someday), and we can……create art on them?
Recently, I saw some photos of the Sacramento Chalk-It-Up festival, which brings out the artist in everyone. The Sacramento event is a fund-raiser for education and the arts, and the sidewalk art created over Labor Day weekend is left for all to enjoy through the entire month of September.
Our weather might not be quite so cooperative, but the idea still has possibilities. Wouldn’t this be a great way to enjoy those late spring afternoons and get the college students mingling with the townees and local kids? It’s not too early to start thinking about it.
The upcoming Spelling Bee to benefit the Northfield Public Library set me to thinking about developing more opportunities for grown-ups to play like kids, so the sidewalk art caught my attention.
