Last Sunday, we spent the afternoon at the Denver Chalk Art Festival on Larimer Square in downtown Denver. More than 200 artists spend hours throughout the weekend creating amazing works of art that turn the streets into a chalk art museum.
There were 3-D creations,
and reproductions of classics.
and whimsical, playful works.
One of the most intriguing creations we discovered was an amazing reflection piece that used distortion through a mirrored tube to turn a stretched ground image into a face.
The personality and style of the artists shone through their work, and there was a little something for everyone.
We had a fun afternoon wandering through the "gallery" and watching the chalk artists at work. As we headed back to our car, we were already wondering what the artists will create next year.
One of the things we love about Denver is that there are always great festivals and events going on around town, and many of them are free! Even better, the beautiful summer weather means you actually want to be outside enjoying those free events. We have a whole list of events around the city on our list of "to-do's" and we are excited to check them off one by one!
