Walking along Second Street in Belmont Shore on Saturday pedestrians found themselves interacting with artists and their art pieces as artists finished their creations to be submitted for the 16th Annual Belmont Shore Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest.
The showcased art ranged in theme, but all used posterboard, chalk pastels, and the sidewalk as their easel. Creativity and dialogue around art sparked as the artists created their own personal masterpieces along the sidewalks of Second Street. Every year the contest gives artists seven hours to complete their work while sharing their process with passersby.
