AIA Chalk Art Festival

I headed down to this event today, bought some tasty coffee from Cafe Francisco at their booth in the Memphis Farmers Market, and took some pictures of the excellent chalk art.

I didn't stay to see the winners, but the interesting thing to me is this: the Pyramid was in at least 6 of the drawings I saw, although it's considered damaged goods to many around here. Empty or not, it's a Memphis icon. Maybe not the put-us-on-the-proverbial-map, backwater-no-mo Memphis icon we were sold 16 years ago. But it's an icon in spite of its utility.
