Marbles Champion

Marbles Champion

On Sunday we walked down to the National Bank parking lot where the 8th annual Chalk It Up! event was taking place. In past years we have visited the site on Montezuma and Sheldon on week days immediately following this street painting festival. It was much more interesting to visit during the event. The professional artists were amazing. We were especially impressed with Willie Zin’s work. He presented in 3-D Norman Rockwell’s famous September 2, 1939 Saturday Evening Post cover “Marbles Champion.” We watched Naomi Foster from Aurora, Colorado complete her child portrait. “Total Eclipse” was another piece of colorful art that captured my imagination. We watched the “Hoops Fixation” entertainment. Although we missed the New Moon Tribal Belly Dance, we took note of their exotic costumes. This is another interesting annual Prescott tradition.
