A collaboration between Sarasota Chalk Festival founder Denise Kowal, and Micheal Coleman of the Pine Ave Restoration Project, for this one of a kind event. Spanning a three block area, chalk artists and musicians. The festival will take place January 18th and 19th with a VIP Artist’s Reception and Dinner on January 17th at the Studio at Gulf and Pine. The event will be a two day local community festival that will reflect the historic and unique qualities of Anna Maria. Street painters, also known as I Madonnari, will use chalk as their medium and the road surface of Pine Avenue as their canvas to create oversized masterworks of art while the public becomes an integral part of the creative process as the viewer. There will be kids activities as well!
