We couldn’t have asked for a better weekend to be in Savannah, GA. Beyond all the wonderful wedding festivities, there was plenty going on in town to keep up busy. One of the highlight’s was definitely SCAD’s [Savannah College of Art and Design] Sidewalk Arts Festival. Such a simple (and cheap!) concept, but a really great way to get people together. Both students and alumni were given small concrete squares in Forsyth Park to completely transform any way they pleased, with thousands looking over their shoulders as they worked. It was fun to see that a couple of the ones I photographed below were big winners!

These artists are phenomenal, amazing! I love the “Andy Warhol” style ones of the woman – just.. breathtaking!

Tho not quite as artistic, I happened to be in Grand Rapids, MI a couple weekends ago when a similar, more grass roots, event called Chalk Flood took place. More at:
It’s really lovely to see such talent transform concrete.
