The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) held its inaugural Art & Chalk Fest on its outdoor campus on July 29-30th. This free event featured a juried selection of 50 fine arts and crafts artists’ booths, twelve chalk artists creating larger-than-life pavement masterpieces, art activities for all ages, live entertainment and music, food vendors, and a beer garden.

MOWA also opened its doors to thousands of patrons to experience the summer fashion exhibitions for free.

Our photos capture the fun at the fest.

    Great 1st Art & Chalk Show Jessica, staff, board, artists and volunteers of Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend, Wisconsin.

    It appears that the event was well-attended with lots of colorful art, food, and other entertainment.
    The weather was also very nice.

    Looks like you had an artist from Milwaukee participating.

    We were pleased to have you on Public Policy w/Mary Glass & Company, Riverwest Radio, WXRW LP 104.1 FM last Friday, 3:30pm-4:30m.

    Will be in touch.
