Chalk the Bay adds color downtown

Coinciding with Harvest Fest, Chalk the Bay brightened up downtown Sturgeon Bay Saturday. Professionals and community members took part with the Door County Public Library organizing the showcase. John Soukup arrived in town last night, his first ever trip to the Door Peninsula. He is based out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Soukup used nearly 60 sticks of chalk to etch a mural of a young girl in nature. Soukup has a background in graphic design and says at times that chalk can be a difficult medium to work with.


Soukup does chalk art at roughly a dozen festivals each year. He stressed how impressed he was by the overall event as it filled Third Avenue with art, vendors, and classic cars for several blocks.
