the mess of art
One of my favorite events to attend in Savannah is the Sidewalk Arts Festival. Every year SCAD hosts this great event at Forsyth Park. Students display their amazing artistic skills using chalk on the sidewalk. It’s so much fun to walk around and admire the art in it’s various stages. I especially love watching the artists working away on their temporary masterpieces. Looking through the photographs I took, I was surprised how many were of the hands & feet of the artists. (Yes, they use their feet – to smudge, to blend…it’s fascinating). I photographed very few finished pieces of art. I didn’t even notice that as I was shooting…Chalk was all over their bodies, their hands, their faces & feet – creating mini body art pieces. Absolutely love this festival!
