The 2013 Pasadena Chalk Festival like events of previous years was a huge success.
But the vivid images of the artwork will live in the tens of thousands of images captured on electronic devices, from cameras and smart phones.
Many artist work from printed pieces, but some use their own vivid imaginations and heartfelt compassion for what they feel strong emotions about, including this piece in memoriam of the Sandy Hook tragedy.
And if you liked the art enough to bid on the silent auction pieces then you may have walked away with a gem or two.
I had chance to catch the last few hours of the festival as most of the artists completed their masterpieces. The best viewing in the late afternoon when the shadows are gone and the light is sun is still providing enough light to enjoy the spectacular details of the art.

Engineered and life science companies continue to be challenging to fund and grow. With the “Clean-Tech” bubble bursting and “Big Pharma” downsizing, a lot of collateral damage has been done to the engineered and life science space. Product development and qualification cycles are long and switching costs may be significant. The bottom line is that the better mouse trap does not always win in the marketplace. A compelling economic or performance advantage (preferably both) must be present for a new technology to win. Patient investors and the right strategic partners are critical for success. Several companies in this space will be presenting as well as a representative from The Office of Technology Transfer at Caltech.
- Dr. Michael A. Giardello, President, CEO and CTO at Materia, Inc.
- Dr. Patrick Sislian, Co-founder and CEO at Deton Corp
- Dr. Hannah Dvorak-Carbone, Associate Director, Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) at Caltech
- Dr. Simon Jones, Vice President of Technology at Contour Energy Systems
- Dr. Sean Caffey, Co-founder and CEO at Replenish, Inc.

There’s a zipline coming to the popular summer spot of Venice Beach, CA.
The zipline will be operational during a trial three month period.
The one minute(actually 40 seconds) zipline trip will cost $20.
Some details on what has been reported:
The 750-foot zip line would zoom people between the bike path and the boardwalk near the skate park and Windward Plaza, just before the basketball courts
A temporary three-month permit to Canadian-based Greenheart Conservation Company to install the ride, which is expected to generate about $150,000 during the pilot period. Two-thirds of those revenues would be allocated to improving Venice Beach facilities, such as restrooms and trash bins. The zip-line could be up-and-running by July 1.
Greenheart estimates the ride will attract between 500 and 1,000 people every day. Rides would cost $20 for the approximate 40-second ride. The hours of operation would be from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. for children’s educational programs and from 11 a.m. to sunset for the general public.
Here’s the original notice of hearing:
More details as they become available.
