STREET PAINTING FESTIVAL LAKE WORTH FLORIDA

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

StreetPaintingLakeworth copyStreet Painting Festival Lake Worth, FL on February 22 & 23, 2014 from 10:00  am – 7:00 pm

Downtown Lake Worth and the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce invite you to the annual Street Painting Festival, which claims bragging rights as the world’s largest. The 2-day event transforms the downtown streets with more than 200 street paintings covering more area than any other festival of its kind in the world. Hundreds of artists converge to display their diverse talents on the asphalt – using only chalk – in styles that range from Renaissance classicism to Cubism and Pop Art. Street performers, strolling minstrels and Main Stage musical entertainment add to the creative atmosphere. And of course, don’t miss the Festival Food Courts, accommodating culinary tastes and thirsts as diverse as the surrounding artwork.

Artists are encouraged to follow a “Movie Theme” such as a scene or character from their favorite film.  Over 400 Artists use the pavement as canvas to transform downtown Lake Worth into a temporary outdoor museum of original art and masterpiece reproductions. See the streets come alive as the artists transform the pavement into works of art. It happens every February in downtown Lake Worth, Florida.

The tradition of Street Painting can traced back to16th 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. The “paintings” last only until the next rain, but the lively spirit and accessibility of the exhibition captivates new audiences each year and inspires lasting memories.

Florida Bed and Breakfast Inns has several Inns located in Palm Beach County, and two specifically in Downtown Lake Worth, The Sabal Palm House and the Mango Inn.  Both are a very short walk to all the activities and offer wonderful accommodations.
