Bakersfield Museum of Art’s annual Via Arté Italian Street Painting Festival has become a Bakersfield tradition, bringing together the community and the visual arts since 1998. Using the asphalt as canvas, spectators watch each year as professional and student artists unlock their imaginations and turn the parking lot of the Marketplace into a gallery of amazing chalk masterpieces.

Thank You to all of the Via Arté 2017 artists, sponsors, and volunteers.
