99 percent sidewalk chalk art J.P. Kelly’s Springfield IL July 21 2012

I shot this video a few months back during a Saturday Downtown Springfield Farmers Market. I’m not sure how long the chalk artwork messages had been there. It was awkward trying to record the sidewalk art with the ladies sitting on the bench. I didn’t have time that day to wait for them to leave. This week several stories have been published wondering if the Occupy Movement has fizzled out.

For those who may have forgotten what Occupy is about or are wanting a bit of a history lesson – I’ll provide a wide range of article links below.
