Chalk and See Chalk: Temecula Street Painting Festival Concludes
June 27, 2010
Temecula — The streets of Old Town Temecula will be aglow with colors June 27 with the finale of the 10th annual Old Town Temecula Street Painting Festival.
More than 100 muralists and visual artists have been working through the weekend to transform squares of the dark asphalt into chalk art masterpieces. Artists began working June 26 and will
return to the streets at 7 a.m. June 27. The main festival schedule is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with winners announced this afternoon.
The public is invited to watch, or those inclined can create their own chalk art in the family section, where more than 500 smaller squares have been blocked out for spectators to work with chalk pastels on the asphalt canvas. Children and families can participate without registration.
The 2010 featured artist is muralist Jesus Gutierrez who won the 2009 event for his entry “Aztec Princess.” A special work will be created by art students from Mt. San Jacinto College's San Jacinto campus. The group will be creating a giant 3-D painting on Main Street similar to murals made famous by Julian Beaver.
The Ralph Love Plein Air Festival, an event within the event, started three years ago and offers a 0 purchase award from Temecula. Plein air artists will scatter throughout Old Town in search of the perfect scene depicting the historical town and put it on canvas. The Plein Air Art Auction will be from 3 to 5 p.m. this afternoon.
Also, Valley Winds will perform.
Events take place in Old Town Temecula at Main and Front streets and are free. Visit temeculacalifornia.com/ or call 951-678-1456.
