    Gallery open Wednesday - Sunday, 12:00-5:00pm

    The Pasadena Chalk Festival, one of the area’s most popular arts attractions, will celebrate its silver anniversary in 2017. The festival began as a small event with a humble launch in front of Pasadena City Hall in 1993.The unique event now includes about 600 visual artists a year and attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the Civic Center over the two-day festival weekend. Light Bringer Project, founders and organizers of the Pasadena Chalk Festival, will team with PMH to produce an exhibit exploring the history and impact of the festival's medium.

    This centuries-old style of street art, also known as pavement art and street painting, can also be viewed as a type of performance art. Artists use impermanent materials such as pastel chalk to create a variety of images and designs on streets and boulevards, sidewalks, plazas, and public spaces. For the past 25 years, the Pasadena Chalk Festival has celebrated this medium, attracting artists and design teams from many regions of the country. Leading art schools, museums, and cultural centers are also represented in the annual event. 

    The creation and installation of chalk murals, some of which are site specific, and chalk drawing demonstrations will be featured. Photographs, a video history, and artists’ stories will be included.

    Major accomplishments highlighted in the exhibit include breaking the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010 and presenting centerpiece artists like the Aboriginal team from Alice Springs and their “dream painting.” A special “tools of the trade” display will give visitors an inside look at the art form’s process and techniques. Artists will demonstrate chalk drawing, and the public will be encouraged to join in (chalk materials provided) on specific dates throughout the run of the exhibition.
