Summer and Street Painters Return to Santa Barbara

The yearly "I Madonnari" transformed the American Riviera city of Santa Barbara, Calif. into a scene of nearly 200 large scale chalk drawings, the oldest running tradition of such celebration in the western hemisphere.

Visitors and locals alike stopped by Old Mission Santa Barbara throughout the busy Memorial Day weekend to watch local artists create over 200 large pastel and chalk images of iconic works of art, paintings and pictures.

Many artists worked nearly nonstop through the three day weekend, etching away at their creations on the courtyard sidewalks. While shade from the Old Mission's bell tower provided little relief to most from the warm, early summer weather, portable lighting units encouraged some artists to work late into the night.

The three day festival called, "I Madonnari" (Italian for 'street painters'), is the oldest of such celebrations to be held in the western hemisphere.

This year's event benefits the Children's Creative Project, a nonprofit education program that brings art classes and performances to over 50,000 children in more than 100 area schools.

Billed as the "XXVI Anniversario", or the 26th anniversary of the festival, it was brought to Santa Barbara from sister city, Grazie di Curtatone, Italy, which also still practices the yearly ritual.

With the backdrop of the Spanish style architecture of the Mission many artists chose to depict paintings from history's most famous painters such as Monet, Van Gogh, and Da Vinci. Others picked from modern photographers, postcards, or portraits.

One of the more popular stops along the route of the many drawings was a black-and-white portrait of Apple founder Steve Job's with the title "The Misfit" running across the bottom.

Another big draw was this year's featured artist and local teacher Delphine Louie, whose roughly twelve-foot by ten-foot drawing of "Rebekah and Abraham's servant" by Carlo Maratti was placed at the steps of the Mission letting onlookers watch her meticulously re-create the painting from above.

An Italian tradition since the 16th century, "I Mandonnari" took the name from their original practice of recreating images of the Madonna.

While Santa Barbara's 18th century formation is credited to the Spanish, the festival takes a momentarily reprieve to celebrate the weekend in Italian style, with tents treating visitors with authentic handmade pasta, pizza, and other dishes.

The three day festival coinciding with the Memorial Day weekend ran May 26th-28th. While admission was, and is always free, donations, tee-shirts, and posters are available throughout the year to help to continue to raise money and awareness. ( )

Those that still want to see the artwork can visit Old Mission Santa Barbara at 2201 Laguna St. in Santa Barbara, Calif. The drawings will remain on the Mission grounds until they being to fade away.

The Mission is also open 9:00am-5:00pm daily for self-guided tours with an admission price of $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $1 for youth 5-15, and free for children under 1.
