Eat, Drink and Be Merry!


Yesterday we spent the morning at the Venice Airport, the site of the Sarasota Chalk Festival. Artists illustrated this year’s theme ‘Eat, Drink and Be Merry!’ in images that boggled your senses like this shark rising from the runway.

Scores of temporary works of art attracted visitors for the week long event.

My favorites were designed to let those in attendance become part of the art. I joined the children dancing around a shark’s tooth.

While John was served on a silver platter.

And we reached in a trap and posed with a pelican.

Each piece of art was marked with a pair of feet labeled “stand here” to ensure perfect viewing.

The event is recognized as the first international street art festival with more than 250 artists from around the globe…absolutely amazing.

Thanks Venice for a great event.
