Santa Barbara Permaculture Network joins I Madonnari Street Chalk Art Festival 2020 – Online
Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-25
Santa Barbara Permaculture Network is excited to sponsor a square in this year’s I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival. Always at the Santa Barbara Old Mission on Memorial Day weekend, this year due to COVID19 the event is going virtual!
Please join us online over the three day holiday weekend as our featured artist Ray Cirino, along with enthusiastic volunteers, creates an Ecosystem Restoration themed pastel chalk art square, highlighting our favorite ecosystem restoration hero, the beaver!
The fun begins to unfold on Friday, May 23, continuing to its completion on Sunday, May 25. All three days will be available for viewing online.
