I, Zeb the Duck, saw so much chalk this weekend.
Mom and I went to Larimer Square in Denver Saturday and Sunday to see chalk art.
Over 200 artists submitted designs and were chosen for this contest. Saturday, we watched artists work
and Sunday we returned to view the finished art. This stuff is great. You will be amazed by this art.
Chalk painting originated in the 16th century in Italy. Some artists call this a performance art, as they enjoy talking to the spectators.
As beautiful as the art is, late Sunday night, a special street sweeper sweeps, or picks up over 175 pounds of chalk and the art is just a memory.
This chalk is properly disposed of to protect the nearby Cherry Creek. We want to keep Cherry Creek water clean and wildlife safe.
Larimer Square is a great place in Denver. We love the many restaurants, and especially love to eat outside.
The small shops have so many things that we don’t see elsewhere. Larimer Square has many festivals, but it is fun just as it is.
At the Chalk Art Festival there were vendors selling wonderful food. The crepes and these huge pieces of candy caught my attention.
Some are giant Rice Krispy Treats.
It was pretty crowded at the festival, so not many photos of me. Also, artists did not appreciate a duck on their art. I was there and I loved it! I hope you go to a chalk art festival near you. You will have a good time.
