Social media meets ancient graphics: chalk on stone (well, sidewalk)


This was a drawing in progress last week for the "Chalk It Up" fundraiser in the neighborhood park. Sponsors rent blocks of sidewalks around the park and commission artists to design them. Some are commercial messages but most are either artistic treatments of logos or simply beautiful chalk work. The proceeds go to help finance classes and programs in public schools.

I didn't see this one when it was finished so don't know who sponsored it. I liked the juxtaposition of chalk on stone and the social media icons.
