37th annual SCAD sidewalk arts festival held in Forsyth Park

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Forsyth Park was full on Saturday as artists brought color to the gray sidewalks.

The festival is a tradition almost as old as the university that puts it together each year. SCAD students and alumni partner with high school artists to create the sidewalk art and compete for prizes.

"It's great for anybody," said Trinity Rodriguez, a SCAD student and spectator. "Parents coming to see their kids come here and actually show their talents to the public of Savannah. I think it's really nice and I think it's a cool event that SCAD has been holding here in Forsyth Park for 30 years. I think it's great."

This year actually marks 37 years of the festival and over time it has only gotten bigger with spectators as well as musical and chalk artists.
