Street painting is the act of creating visual art on paved urban surfaces using non-permanent materials such as chalk and soft pastels. Sometimes called Madonarii, it is an art form dating to the Italian Renaissance when itinerant artists often created images of the Madonna. Today's street painters treat a variety of subjects, from classical paintings to abstract art and their own creations. Participating artists include Chris Brake, Gus Moran, Juan Manuel Ramal, Lury Norris, Nick Gonzalez, Randall Williams, Ruth Villa and Theresa Knopf Morgan. They will be working all weekend creating ephemeral masterpieces, and the finished 10 X 10' paintings will be ready for viewing Sunday afternoon.
