Each year, Sacramento hosts a Chalk It Up festival over Labor Day weekend in Midtown’s Fremont Park. The festival is located in my neighborhood, and sounds of the local musicians naturally lure you out of your dwelling to check out the fine artwork from local artists. The artwork was simply amazing again this year, and I shot several photos. I caught one of the local artists, Dawn Pederson, in action. She has produced some of the most beautiful drawings at the festival the last couple of years. She is pictured in the photo below.
The photo below was one of my favorite drawings – and was sponsored by a plumbing company!
I also learned some new information – midtownsacramento.com has now become midtowngrid.com. Their sponsored photo, a very walkability-related theme, is below.
This was one of the most beautiful drawings below. Too bad the palm tree’s shadow got in the way…
There are 37 additional photos from the event available in our photo gallery. I couldn’t put them all in this article, but there are several more very spectacular drawings – please check them out. I also added more photos of Sacramento as well.
