Santa Cruz in Photos: A Personal Chalk Art Open Studios

Chalk art on the sidewalks of a Westside neighborhood responds to the Covid-19 pandemic


This chalk art was created by Santa Cruz artist Janice Serilla in reaction to the Covid-19 crisis.

Serilla says she took her talents to the sidewalks of her Westside neighborhood to help express herself in an open public forum since galleries, museums and such are currently closed.

“Since Open Studios will most likely be closed this year, the sidewalks are now my open studio,” she says. Her work, which has now been flushed away with the rain, covered about six squares of the sidewalk.
