On June 18, artists from around the state came to Hamilton Town Center in Noblesville to transform parking spaces along the main thoroughfare into works of art.
The annual Chalk Art Festival at the shopping center drew professionals and amateurs alike to create colorful murals on the ground, each space designated by a parking space.
Both for their murals of characters from the “Finding Nemo” and “Finding Dory” movies, Christina Blanton of Danville, Ind. won in the professional category, and Annabel Johnson of Pendleton, Ind. won in the amateur category.
Locally from Hamilton County, Franco Sergi of Fishers placed second in the professional category. Mattie Barrows of Arcadia placed second and Nandini Naveen of Fishers placed third in the amateur category.
