During the two-day street art festivals, participants created drawings on the plaza. Proceeds from the event benefit Public Art Reston, a non-profit organization that aims to promote the arts in Reston.
More than 180 people participated in the event, which drew roughly 1,725 attendees.
“The event went extremely well despite the weather forecast. Artists in all categories created amazing chalk drawings. Most artists came prepared with a sketch or image they planned to realize in chalk,” said Anne Delaney, executive director of Public Art Reston.
The winners for three categories — professional artists, amateur artists and families and kids — are below and pictured above:
- 1st Place: Penny Hauffe
- 2nd Place: Erica Fallin
- 3rd Place: Brianna Camp
- 1st Place: Maxine Prudhomme & Samantha Burgess
- 2nd Place: Jennifer Griffith
- 3rd Place: Tongman Yang
Families & Kids
- 1st Place: Faisal Chaudry
- 2nd Place: John Byron
- 3rd Place: Elia Jarrett
All of the artwork from the weekend’s festival will remain visible on the plaza until it wears off naturally, which could happen today given the forecast of rain.
