A local art tradition since 1998, the annual Via Arté Italian Street Painting Festival comes to the Bakersfield Museum of Art. On Oct. 16 and 17, the festival will be held at The Marketplace from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The goal is to have professional artists use their imagination using the asphalt as their canvas just like the classic Italian Street Painting style. 

This year, the festival will feature both professional artists and community-favorite Via Bambino children’s area, where children and their adults can create their own chalk masterpieces. Families can purchase a box of chalk and a 2’ x 2’ square area for $20.
