Saturday, September 12, 2020 (Rain Date Sunday, Sept 13) Noon –3pm. Judging begins at 2:30pm
Bring your family a friends to create art in the company of other artists, musicians and art lovers. The celebration centers on Madonnari street painting, an art form dating back to 16th century Italy, where street painters created works of art in front of cathedrals to pay homage to the Virgin Mary.
Sidewalk painters are assigned a square on a first come, first serve basis. A basic chalk kit and blending materials are provided. We recommend bringing knee-pads, sunscreen and a hat. All artwork must be suitable for public viewing. No words or symbols intended as advertising may appear within the image: however after the judging is complete you may sign your name. If your square is sponsored, the sponsors name will appear above the space. Sidewalk artists agree that work done in conjunction with this festival may be reproduced by photograph or video and used by the Ravenna Parks and Recreation Department for promotional purposes. Artists must check in before 12:30pm to avoid their square being given away. All COVID precautions will be taken. You may be notified if staggered start times are needed.
