2018 Photos: Cleveland Museum of Art's 29th Annual Chalk Festival

Cleveland Museum of Art's 29th Annual Chalk Festival

I had planned to be out of town in September 2018, but a change in plans brought me home early, allowing me to continue my annual tradition of creating a blog post of my photos from the Cleveland Museum of Art's Chalk Festival It is one of my favorite community events, which was celebrating its 29th year on the weekend of September 15-16, 2018! 

I have added my own chalk drawing in the past, but this year I rode my bike on the evening of Sunday, September 16, 2018, to see all the finished artwork after attending the Cleveland Cultural Gardens 73rd Annual One World Day.

Here are my 130 photos of the Cleveland Museum of Art's 29th Annual Chalk Festival, including my favorite pieces.

Cleveland Museum of Art Chalk Festival 2017

Cleveland Museum of Art Chalk Festival 2017

Every year, we visit and write a blog post about the Cleveland Museum of Art's Chalk Festival. It is one of our favorite community events. This blog post includes our photos from the two-day event, and our @sos_jr tweets/retweets with more photos and information about this year's Chalk Festival.

Most years, we attend only on Sunday. Stuart normally does a chalk drawing, and we take photos of all the finished works late on Sunday. This year, Stuart had two events scheduled for Sunday, so we spent a relaxing day on Saturday, September 16, 2017, on the Cleveland Museum of Art's south lawn overlooking Wade Lagoon.

Stuart did his annual chalk drawing, while Julie took in the ambiance of this peaceful setting. The Fine Arts Garden, with its Chester Beach’s Fountain of the Waters, combined with live music, and people from all over Cleveland creating their art, made for a perfect day.

Cleveland Chalk Festival

Cleveland Museum of Art Chalk Festival 2012

Every fall, the Cleveland Museum of Art's Fine Arts Garden's stone pathways become a colorful canvas for our community. People of all ages are invited to contribute to the creation of a tapestry of Cleveland art. This was my first visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art since they opened the new atrium. What struck me was, how after seeing artists' renditions of the atrium for the past couple of years, seeing it in the real world felt unreal. Join me in enjoying this Cleveland celebration of creativity by viewing my photos and interactive views of the festival.
