This is one of Sacramento's best art events. Every year for 22 years, people come decorate the sidewalk with chalk. Some are very realistic. Some are pretty juvenile. All done in a spirit of fun. Sometimes, as in the case of many of my works, you can tell that the artist was trying to be much more ambitious than their capabilities allow.
With over 25,000 visitors every year, Chalk It Up! draws spectators and artists from all over the state. If you're ever near Sacramento on Labor day weekend, come check out Chalk It Up!
