Festival to Feature Italian Street Painting

Using chalk as their medium, madonnari (street painters) will transform the concrete floors of the West Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds into a color‐splashed gallery for Indy's International Festival. The annual event is open to the public 20-22 November at the fairgrounds, 1201 East 38th Street, Indianapolis.

In addition, festival‐goers (including students during the schools-only hours on 19 and 20 November) will have a chance to try their hand at this ancient art‐form all weekend. Our primary madonnari will be local artist and muralist Vandra Linder.

Tickets at the door are $9 for adults and $6 for children (6-12; under 6, free). Show your AAA Hoosier Motor Club Membership card at the door, and receive $2 off a day-of-show adult ticket.
