A family-friendly day to enjoy sidewalk art inspired by Italian Renaissance tradition

Cleveland (August 26, 2021) — The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) will host the 2021 Chalk Festival in person Saturday, September 11, noon to 5 p.m., rain or shine. The festival features sidewalk paintings by professional chalk artists and local community groups, families and individuals. This year, the community is invited to take part in a featured chalk drawing by artist Bruno Casiano and make it come alive with color.

Participants will have an opportunity to showcase their own art on the museum’s south plaza and throughout the pathways that wind through the Fine Arts Garden and down to Wade Lagoon. Squares and boxes of chalk are available for $10 with on-site, day-of registration (supplies limited). The Chalk Festival is free to visitors wishing to enjoy the artists’ work and listen to live music by Outlaws I & I.
