23rd Annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival
More than 600 artists will use the street as their canvas to transform downtown Lake Worth into a temporary outdoor gallery of art February 25 – 26, 2017 during the 23rd Annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival.
The Tradition of Street Painting
Traced back to 16th century Italy when itinerant artists would use their chalks to transform pavement into a makeshift canvas, street painting has retained its appeal through the centuries. As in ages past, crowds still gather to watch as fine works of art emerge. Although the “paintings” are not intended to last, the lively spirit and accessibility of this performance art form captivate new audiences each year and inspires lasting memories.
