Walk chalk. On April 26, as artists battled the elements, chalk battled its natural enemy, rain. Despite the down pour, which cut short the sidewalk art festivities short a day, artists came out and colored the sidewalks around the Kansas City Museum while it was dry. Pictured above, Johnson, who has been drawing since he was two-years old and lives for chalk drawings, said the rain actually helps because it blends the colors together better. His goal with the piece was to make it 3D looking, “like the ant is trying to escape from the card.”
