Who would have known?

PAINTED STREETS
Step into this South Florida town, and watch an art gallery appear beneath your feet.
On a sunny Saturday morning, the streets of Lake Worth, Florida, blossom in colors as bright as a garden. Hundreds of artists kneel with chalk in hand, sketching their entries for the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival in February. Artists come from as far away as California to draw more than 240 paintings that are reproductions of classics that hang in museums. Many artists attend Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach.
How long the art lasts depends on nature. Traffic takes its toll when the streets reopen--tires act like big erasers.

Probably won't be much left for us to see when we get there with all those giant erasers driving the streets! We're off to the Senior Uible farewell brunch and returning KC to his parents event this am after he spent last night with us.
