MARIETTA, Ga. - Dozens of professional chalk artists from around the country will be in Marietta this weekend, making the city sidewalks much more colorful as they honor the “Old Masters” of art.
The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art presents Chalktoberfest on October 8-9, in Marietta Square and on Atlanta Street to the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art. The event draws talented artists to Marietta and challenges them to create colorful chalk art from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days, with a theme this year of "Old Masters." Along with the chalk art, there will be a Craft Beer Festival on Saturday featuring more than a hundred different craft brews, and a Creative Kids craft-making area on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art will be free during the entire fun of the festival.
Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent the morning in Marietta, getting a preview of this unique event.
