  • Trip Report Joe's Pasadena Chalk Festival trip report - with pictures of course

    On Sunday, Theresa, Jacob, Ruston and I all enjoyed the 20th annual Pasadena Chalk Festival.

    You can read all about it here in the Pasadena Star News - Pasadena Chalk Festival.

    The massive, two-day display of temporary art - recognized as the largest street-painting festival in the world - has drawn to a close. But not before attracting well over 100,000 art-lovers to the heart of Pasadena to witness it.
    "It's just a fun atmosphere and great art," said Theresa Flowers, who strolled the grounds of the Paseo Colorado with her husband, Joe.
    The couple said they were most impressed by the lifelike depictions some of the artists created with their chalk, such as a representation of a Time magazine cover featuring Albert Einstein and a chalk rendition of Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night."











    This one almost looks like you could dip your toe in the water.








    This one was one of my favorites of the day. It looked amazing! The shading and detail were impressive.











    There were tons of artists here.








    Off to the side it said, "She said yes!"
    (photo tip for next year, come later in the day when the shadows are gone)











    We've seen the actual statue of this one in the Vatican back in 2007. Pretty cool to see it recreated here in chalk.


    (and here's my photo of the original)












    We even saw a few kids creating great pieces of art.






    There were actually a few Disney pieces here.



    Hunger Games


    Coke was here giving away prizes.
















    This is what happens when super heroes land on pavement.

    I thought this was a really interesting take on the Justice League.





    Go Avengers! Love the little Nick Fury on the side.


    Looking forward to the new Batman movie coming out.


    Gotta love Dumb and Dumber












































    This one looked ultra photo-realistic.








    It was an awesome experience! We will definitely be back again next year!

      We'd thought about going but weren't sure how the kids would react! Thank you for sharing.

          Very cool! It's amazing what people can create with chalk. It's such a tough medium.
