The City of Temecula Community Services Department has released the application for participation in the Temecula’s Art & Street Painting Festival. All artists; chalk artists, fine artists and artisans of wood, pottery, jewelry and other mediums are invited to take part in this event. Now, in its 16th year the Old Town Temecula Street Painting Festival will present an extravaganza with giant, detailed, and colorful chalk murals on the streets of Old Town Temecula.
The three-day event will be held on June 10, 11, and 12, 2016, and will feature over 80 chalk murals creating an asphalt gallery of chalk art masterpieces some as large as 12-feet by 12-feet. This year’s theme is On The Road Again and will bring chalk artists from all over Southern California and Arizona to participate in this unique form of performance art. Each year the Temecula Art & Street Painting Festival draws thousands of visitors to Old Town Temecula.
Artists of all mediums are invited to participate in the Temecula Art Festival, which will be held in conjunction with the Temecula Street Painting Festival. The Temecula Art Festival is a juried art show featuring fine artists, ceramicists, jewelry designers, and photographers showing and selling their work in festival tents lining Town Square Park, Main Street, and the Civic Center quad. We just can’t wait to get On The Road Again!
