I Madonnari Street Painting Festival in San Luis Obispo


It doesn’t get much better than this! It was an absolutely beautiful weekend for the 19th annual I Madonnari festival. Each year in early September, the plaza of the Old Mission in San Luis Obispo California is transformed with colorful, large-scale street paintings created by artists and young people. The artists or “madonnari” begin working on Saturday morning of the weekend and continue drawing throughout the two-day festival. Funds raised through the festival benefit the Children’s Creative Project, a non profit arts education organization that supports arts programs in San Luis Obispo County schools. These are just a few of the pictures I took Sunday.
