The 2020 La Strada dei Pastelli Chalk Art Festival has been rescheduled to 2021 Due to COVID-19. In its absence, 2D4D produced a 2020 “Un-Festival” highlighting the imaginative persistence of our community during these trying times.
The “Un-Festival” video showcases artists Brittany Resch, Morgan Miller, Susan Charnquist, and Shelley Fagin working on images inspired by the theme “Everyday Heroes and First Responders.” In an effort to recreate the wildly popular kids area of the annual festival, 2D4D also simultaneously did a public call for submissions. Community members throughout the Portland Metro area, and even as far as Southern California submitted heart-touching chalk drawings and sayings drawn out in their own neighborhood driveways.
