La Strada dei Pastelli Award Winner: Congratulations to Wayne and Cheryl Renshaw
Last month on July 16- 17, 2022, nearly 40,000 people traveled into Downtown Hillsboro’s Cultural Arts District for Tualatin Valley Creates’ 4th annual chalk art festival La Strada dei Pastelli. There, they saw 25 award-winning and emerging artists from Oregon, California, Virginia and Georgia transform Main Street into a gallery full of colorful and vibrant Legos, pandas, bubbles, and portraits of kids playing. This multi-cultural festival gathered people of all ages, races, abilities, and interests to enjoy live art, local music, vendors, and hands-on activities for the kids.
Winning the ‘People’s Choice Award’ was husband and wife team Wayne and Cheryl Renshaw, with their 3D image of two girls playing on bouncy balls. Along with artwork done by professional artists, kids had the opportunity to create their own chalk masterpieces, filling over 1,000 squares. There were smiles all around from on-lookers and participants alike.
We look forward to seeing you next year! For more information, visit https://tvcreates.org/lastrada/
