September 18, 2016 - 27th Annual Chalk Festival Cleveland Museum of Art
27th Annual Chalk Festival in the Fine Arts Garden at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Children and adults enjoy this annual event where community members join professional artists in using the walkways around the Fine Arts Garden as a colorful canvas. Begun in 1990, Cleveland Museum of Art's festival is a modern expression of a Renaissance tradition from 16th-century Italy in which beggars copied paintings of the Madonna by Raphael and his contemporaries, using chalk on the plazas outside cathedrals.
