Chalk This Way


The Cleveland Museum of Art's annual Chalk Festival always brings out the sidewalk Picassos. For 17 years, folks have decorated the concrete paths surrounding Wade Lagoon with sketches of rainbow-drenched sunsets and other colorful subjects. In addition to the budding artists making their mark, look for a group of professional chalkers who'll undoubtedly sketch something more impressive than the usual stick-figures-on-a-hill scene. Local reggae band DubFlex supplies tunes.
