Chalk + downtown Denver = Art!

At the start of every summer, Larimer Square in Denver is the host of the Chalk Art Festival.  Artists from all over Colorado (and even some from around the U.S.) come downtown and stake their claim to a 4x6 foot square on the street of Larimer or 14th.  And the art grows from there.  The things that can be done with chalk! It makes me wish that I was an artist, so that I could get down on the ground and color and blend with the rest of the artists. 

 Instead... I play the proud girlfriend of one of the artists!  Yep, thats right, Jay's artistic talents (to which he is amazingly modest about) are put to the test in chalk.  He and his friend Nate hunker down for 2 days and come out with some of the most colorful, whimsical art.  I love watching the two of them create art out of chalk.
This year's work:

the boys and their matching shirts
Sadly, the chalk has long since been washed away.  So we'll just have to wait until next year to see what is created.
