2. Below The Knees (Week 22)

Just when the caterpillar thought
the world was over, it became a butterfly.

I’d forgotten that I took these photos with “Below The Knees” in mind!  The only way to create sidewalk chalk art is to get down on your hands and knees – and the only way to view it is to look down below the knees, as well.

For 6 years, The Sarasota Chalk Art Festival was held in downtown Sarasota. This most recent festival in November was moved to another part of the county.  Venice hosted the event at three locations.  Artists came from all over the world to participate in this global community-based event.  Thousands of people are drawn to the festival and the public could interact with the artists as they created their beautiful pavement art.  The theme was “Extinct & Endangered Species.”   There was traditional art as well as 3D illusionistic paintings.  All the colors were really vivid, as you can see.
