Santa Barbara’s 35th I Madonnari street painting festival to be held online

Mar 31, 2021 175

The Santa Barbara County Education Office has begun planning a virtual version of this year's I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival. The festival is scheduled to take place on May 29, 30, and 31. Normally, the festival is held in front of the Old Mission where artists of all ages from across the country come to draw their chalk masterpieces.

However, due to the pandemic, the I Madonnari will look a little different. Instead of gathering in-person, artists are encouraged to draw their pieces on their driveway and share the images on social media. Daily photos of the artwork will be posted on the festival's website, Facebook and Instagram pages and remain up through May 2022.
