A New (or perhaps old) Take on Street Art

by Hannah the Zebra

Over the last few decades, the term Street Art has come to refer to a very specific, stylized, and quite professional form of art which is painted in common spaces such as fences, walls, and freeway underpasses.

Late Sunday afternoon, however, as I was returning home from the walk with the dogs, I came upon these delightful chalk drawings outside an apartment house just up the block. I suspect it was drawn by a child as a present to her or his mother for Mother’s Day. I remember making similar chalk pictures on the driveway or the sidewalk when I was a child. We all did. Perhaps this is actually the original Street Art here in the States.
