The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation is preparing its first-ever entry in the I Madonnari chalk festival at the Santa Barbara Mission this weekend.  We can’t show you the entire design we have planned, because then it would ruin the surprise, but we can present a bit of a preview.

Artist and Higman Intern Madison Lowrey designed SBTHP’s entry in conjunction with Education Director Melissa Chatfield.  This week Lowrey and fellow Higman Intern Dana Hughes worked on a test run before the big day on Saturday.

We hope you will come out to support our team and all the great entries at I Madonnari this year.  Admission is free, and the festival runs from 10am – 6pm on May 23, 24 and 25.

See you there!
