Temecula’s annual Art and Street Painting Festival will be held online this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will take place from June 1-7. “Most artists, creatives and makers have an online presence, so they have been able to establish patron relationships to develop and encourage sales throughout the year,” Wilhe Augustine, the coordinator for the event, said. While this is the first year they’ve done this, the event will still highlight artists, jewelry designers, cartoonists, woodcrafters, ceramicists and photographers selling their products in a virtual format. “Last year we had 60 art exhibitors and 30 chalk artists. This year we have about half that number registered for the virtual event so far,” Augustine said. [caption id="attachment_26664" ali
