Since 2010 the Chalk Festival has displayed the largest display of 3D pavement illusions in one location, more than any other place or any other time in the history of the art form. Innovator of 3D pavement art form, Kurt Wenner, will be redesigning the Megalodon Shark world-record and working alongside the 2014 record holders from all over the world that will be once again, lead by Julie Kirk-Purcell. 

3D illusions make the road surface appear to dip inward or rise above as the artists paint intricate designs that become interactive when finished. These illusions are all sorts of sizes from 12 feet and up to 100 feet, taking artists 3-8 days to complete. They are created by one artist or sometimes a teams of artists, depending on the size. 

Most 3D illusions will be completed or close to completed by November 9th, when the festival first opens.
