Daniel Dienelt, Kay Gregg, Bob Storey, and Josef Zimmerman. We are an art collaborative in Fort Wayne, Indiana. We are designers, artists, and curators. The group has been operating independently and together on projects since 2012. The mediums and styles vary radically at times from oil to screen-printing to photography. We may vary in the execution of our art, but our goal is the same: to bring art to the community and help educate and inspire.

The event is based on an Italian tradition of street painting that dates to the 16th century, known as i madonnari (street painters). Using pastels, artists may choose to reproduce existing artworks or create their own in their designated square. Held in conjunction with the Three Rivers Festival, Chalk Walk is truly a community event and draws on the amazing talents of area, regional and national artists. Individuals and families with no training in art are especially encouraged to participate.
