Chalk Festival 3D Illusion Museum Re-opens

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY MAY 6, 2020

With new safety guidelines in place, the Chalk Festival 3D Illusion Museum has re-opened for its final month now till May 31st at the Ice House located at 1314 10th Street in Sarasota.

This unique art experience, a fundraiser for the organization, allows ticket holders to step into the art scenes creating a dynamic three dimensional photo to share with friends on social media. With over 45 different illusions, the scenes range from a giant shark taking a bite out of a glass bottle to a swamp image complete with an enormous alligator and snake slithering through the lily pads.

“We are thrilled to be able to re-open our 3D Illusion Museum again and invite the public to reserve their time to experience this spectacular interactive exhibit for all ages. From the museum space to each of the paintings, the exhibit was created by artists and volunteers gifting their time, resources and talent to the project as a fundraiser for The Avenida de Colores, Inc that produces The Chalk Festivals in both Sarasota and Venice.“ Chalk Festival Founder, Denise Kowal said.

Each illusion has designated the perfect spot on the floor to make the scene “come alive” for guests through their lens. The mind is tricked into seeing the shapes take on depth, breadth or action allowing a shark to swim toward you or a very hungry group of creatures sharpening their forks over a can that you step into for the photo.

The exhibit has implemented the proper COVID-19 safety measures to include cleaning procedures, encouraging guests to wear safety masks, and limiting the groups to 10 with proper social distancing.
