“Chalk Walk” in the Park
Polk County’s only professional Chalk Art event in our Capital City of Bartow
Centrally located in Ft. Blount Park, the main crossroads of Bartow, this centuries old art form from the 16th century was created by Italian artists who paid tribute to the first work of the “Madonna” that was drawn on the side walks by Italian artists.
A new generation of “street painters” who travel from city to city, and festival to festival, creating chalk artwork that hardly lasts longer than than the handful of days required to make them is alive and well all over the globe. We are thrilled to bring this 2 day event, and form of art to Bartow and invite you to join us.
