The big draw: Temporary art takes many forms at this year’s Chalk the Block fest in Downtown El Paso
By Doug Pullen \ El Paso Times
Marina Monsisvais calls Chalk the Block, the city’s annual chalk art festival, “experiential.”
The core of the growing 4-year-old festival, which returns to Downtown El Paso today through Sunday, is art drawn in chalk on sidewalks and other paved surfaces in the Arts Festival Plaza and San Jacinto Plaza.
But it becomes so much dust in the wind in a matter of days.
“In a few days, the art is gone. If you snooze, you lose,” said Monsisvais, who co-chairs the committee that organizes the three-day event for the city’s Museum’s Cultural Affairs Department and the El Paso Community Foundation.
Festival organizers have tried to come up with more ways to keep area residents from missing the free festival.
