Despite the threat of rain, the tenth annual Oberlin Chalk Walk celebrated its milestone 10th anniversary on Saturday, June 20, 2015. Over 900 registered participants created their own chalk masterpieces on the sidewalks of downtown Oberlin. They were joined by master artists sponsored by the AMAM, local artists organized by the Firelands Association for the Visual Arts (FAVA), and members of the Oberlin High School Art Club.
In conjunction with the event, AMAM and FAVA education staff offered chalk drawing workshops for summer camp and service organizations throughout Lorain County, reaching over 200 children.
Master artists Hector Castellanos and Wendy Mahon finish their 2015 work, based on José Clemente Orozco's print
"Paisaje mexicana (Mexican Landscape)," which was featured in the AMAM exhibition Latin American and Latino Art at the Allen.
