BEST OF FESTIVAL 2010 FIRST PLACE
GUSTAVO LOZANO - #168
PASADENA CHALK FESTIVAL designated the World’s Largest Display of Chalk Art in 2010 by Guinness World Records, will draw over 600 artists from across Southern California and beyond, who will use 25,000 sticks of pastel chalk to create spectacular murals on concrete throughout the beautiful courtyards of Paseo Colorado. Amazing works of art from every style imaginable, classical to contemporary, whimsical and fantastic to socially relevant, will be created and shown at the festival over the course of Father’s Day weekend.
This one-of-a-kind public art event, now in its 19th year, is free-of-charge at Paseo Colorado. The most outstanding murals in several categories, as selected by the participating artists of the 2011 Pasadena Chalk Festival will win jetBlue round trip tickets, along with other special awards from our sponsors. Visitors will be able to vote for their favorite mural, “The People’s Choice Award” in participating Paseo Colorado retail stores. All winning murals will be announced at 5:00pm Sunday evening.
PASADENA CHALK FESTIVAL attracts artists and design teams from many regions of the country and virtually every Los Angeles-area community. Leading art schools, museums and cultural centers are also represented at the festival. Chalk benefits the community arts programs of the Light Bringer Project, a Pasadena-based nonprofit arts organization.
