Sponsored by the Art in Public Places Board of the City of Key West in order “to enhance and maintain the character and identity of our island community through the aesthetic of public art” the third annual Chalk Festival took place this November 19-23, 2014. Key West the Newspaper (The Blue Paper) stopped by on the 23rd to see the completed works, speak to the artists and learn the results of the competition.
Both the local artists and the visiting professionals created stunning works to decorate our community and tantalize our minds. Michael Shields and the entire AIPP Board should be commended for organizing such a positive, creative event in our community. Please watch the attached video to see the work of our local and visiting artists.
