July 29, 2019 – West Bend, WI – The West Bend Fire Department will team with some junior firefighters early this Monday morning to wash away the chalk art from the Art & Chalk Fest held over the weekend at the Museum of Wisconsin Art.
Below are photos and videos of the 2018 washing event.
The 2019 art wash starts at 9 a.m.
Quite a few neighbors were shocked when they saw the art was removed so quickly after the event. Artist Janet Tombros said it’s normal for chalk art to be removed. “The artists understand,” she said.
