Logos for La Strada dei Pastelli and 2D4D.

Produced by the nonprofit arts organization 2D4D, La Strada dei Pastelli Chalk Art Festival is an immersive, large-scale street painting experience unlike any other in the tri-county region. The annual event highlights the 500-year old tradition of Italian street painting. Professional visual artists create entirely ephemeral designs while attendees have the opportunities to inquire about their processes and inspirations that otherwise happens behind closed-doored studios. Within just a few hours attendees can watch drawings evolve from plain asphalt to fully-rendered, multi-colored masterpieces.

Night Market map for chalk artists' locations.The 2021 chalk artist lineup includes:

  • Joel Yau (at Jan’s)
  • Carrie Dziabczenko (at Covenant Clocks)
  • Jennifer Ripassa (at Covenant Clocks)
  • Jessi Queen (at Ickabod’s Grill)
  • Jolene Russell (at Ickabod’s Grill)
  • Sharyn Chan (at Ickabod’s Grill)
  • Shelley & Dave Brenner (3D design in front of Lionheart Coffee)

The 2021 La Strada has been supported in part by Patricia Reser, City of Beaverton, Central Beaverton NAC, Blick Art Materials, Strauss International, OnPoint Community Credit Union, and Rivermark Community Credit Union among others.

About 2D4D
2D4D is a nonprofit arts organization working to strengthen the region’s creative impact by helping artists and arts-leaders in the 2-dimentional and 4-dimentional (time-based) fields achieve greater potentials both individually and collectively. We believe that it is through our collective voice, works, and actions that the arts inspire, provoke, enhance, and contribute to the emotional and economic wellbeing of our region. 2D4D does this by providing free and low-cost classes, workshops, networking events, exhibition and performance opportunities each designed to expose the value, function, and necessity for social diversity and dialog. This is only possible by bridging interaction between the arts and non-arts communities to recognize that each supports the other. www.2d4d.orgtext

About the Market

The Beaverton Night Market is a project of the city’s Diversity Advisory Board, which has a primary role in planning and hosting the market each year. The concept is an original action item from the city’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Plan. The first Beaverton Night Market debuted in Sept 2015 as a part of the city’s Welcoming Week and later grew to larger summer events attracting around 14,000 people each year.

Purpose

The Beaverton Night Market exists to create a vibrant, intercultural, family-friendly space that is reminiscent of night markets internationally. The Market offers a culturally-relevant evening activity and gathering space with ethnic food and crafts for families of all backgrounds in Beaverton.

Goals

  1. Foster a space for cross-cultural exchange and interaction by community members.
  2. Create a space for emerging ethnic food/craft vendors to showcase their work and share their traditions.
  3. Promote economic opportunity for culturally-specific businesses in Beaverton.
  4. Offer a fun, family-friendly, cultural activity locally

Diversity Advisory Board (DAB)

The DAB exists to advise the city on equity and inclusion strategies that strengthen connections among diverse communities living in Beaverton and with the city government. Public meetings every second Monday of the month. Always looking for new members! More info at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/DAB.
