Residents transform St. Petersburg into an open-air Chalk Art Gallery

Residents across St. Petersburg are doing their part to keep everyone safe and healthy. Part of that is staying at home. Many have proved that you can still brighten your neighborhood from the comfort of your block. The sidewalks in St. Petersburg’s historic neighborhoods have served as a new canvas for expressions of love, togetherness, compassion.

My walks in the Old Northeast Neighborhood have grown exceedingly brighter courtesy of the art from kids and adults alike.

We encourage everyone to chalk the ‘Burg with messages of love and appreciation for one another. Also, all the love in the world for those drawing dance break circles, and hop scotch courses on the sidewalk. They are making my walks far more interesting.

Have you added some chalk art in St. Pete? Tag @ilovetheburg in a photo, and use the tag #ilovetheburg and we will add it to this article!

We have even seen Marriage proposals written on the sidewalk at North Shore Park.

My pup has also appreciated the gorgeous fruit-inspired art in the Old Northeast.

The Old Southeast has also joined in on the sidewalk chalk art. I can’t think of a better welcome to the neighborhood.

Be Kind. Be Brave. Be Well. Stay Safe. Words to live by, and they look especially marvelous on the iconic hexagonal sidewalks of the Old Northeast.
