The Monrovia Association of Fine Arts (MAFA) presents the 52nd Annual “Celebrate the Arts” Show, and Monrovia’s first ever ChalkFest, which will take place on September 26 and 27, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day in Library Park. Nearly 50 area fine artists and 10 chalk artists will display and demonstrate their mastery, and a dozen live musical and dance acts will perform in the afternoons. This year, the show will include many firsts, including:
§ The first ChalkFest for Monrovia
§ The first kids chalk activities and coloring contest
§ The first appearance by students from Mt. Sierra College (11 fine artists and 2 chalk artists)
§ The first live glass blowing demonstration
§ The first appearance by 18 artists new to MAFA
In addition, students from Monrovia High School and Canyon High School will be on hand to display and demonstrate their ceramics and urban art work. A Silent Auction has also been coordinated to feature the work of participating artists, with all proceeds generated form the auction going to support arts education for kids and teens in Monrovia.
There will also be FOOD TRUCKS!
