Chalk artists brought vintage Valentine’s Day cards, Mario and even a 3D candy factory to life during the festival.
HORIZON WEST Bright colors popped against the cement as chalk artists brought their drawings to life during Hamlin’s Chalk Art Festival on Saturday, Feb. 16. Seven artists and one team of three artists worked tirelessly for hours with chalk, water and more to create beautiful, love-themed pieces. Artist Janet Tombros and “The Chalk Guys” — Hector Diaz and Ken Mullen — worked for hours on a 3D candy factory, while others created vintage valentine cards and more. Additionally, Hamlin residents could purchase chalk of their own and a sidewalk square to draw in.
