Mark your calendars, January 18th and 19th brings the first annual Anna Maria Island Chalk Festival.
Anna Maria Island Chalk Festival
A collaboration between Sarasota Chalk Festival founder Denise Kowal, and Micheal Coleman of the Pine Ave Restoration Project. This is a one of a kind event. Spanning a three block area, chalk artists and musicians will be performing.
The festival will take place all day 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. They’ll use the road surface of Pine Avenue as their canvas to create oversized masterworks of art. All this while the public becomes an integral part of the creative process as the viewer. There will be kids activities too!
