Chalk art on streets and sidewalks inspires and encourages

Howling wind and scattered snow still fill the air as we near the end of April, but neither the COVID-19 virus nor the unseasonably cold weather have halted the creativity of sidewalk artists in the region.

On your next walk around the block, look down and you’re sure to spot some of the colorful chalk drawings blooming all over the sidewalks and driveways of the Great Lakes Bay Region.

You’re guaranteed to see classic hopscotch games and cute drawings by both kids and adults alike scratched onto the sidewalks. Walk a little farther, though, and you’re likely to see drawings conveying messages of hope and encouragement. Much of the art is vivid and beautiful; and, Epicenter Mt. Pleasant has gathered a few examples from across the region.
