Congratulations to Matteo Appignani, our First Place winner and winner of the People’s Choice award, to Katie Better, our Second Place winner, and Heejun Ahn and John Gingrich, our Third Place winners.

Thank you to the residents of Little Italy, to the owners,  operators and staff of the Little Italy restaurants and businesses, to our organizers, our sponsors, our volunteers, our judges, members of the press, city officials and most of all, to the artists who have changed Little Italy forever with their creative energy and enthusiasm.  The beautiful chalk drawings may fade but the memories of this exquisite event and the knowledge that we can work together as a community to stage a world class arts festival is a lasting gift.  This year’s festival was the beginning of a new tradition in Baltimore…Get ready for the Little Italy Baltimore Madonnari Arts Festival 2016!
