Greenbelt Sidewalk Chalk
June 27, 2020 7:39 AM   Subscribe

In the DC suburb of Greenbelt, Maryland (previously), one person is living through pandemic quarantine by drawing chalk murals on the public walkways (SLInstagram). Saint Anthony Fauci. Coronavirus Truther Robin. Big Lebowski. Divine. Antifascist Woody Guthrie.

Note: I live in Greenbelt and this person lives around the corner from me.

Instagram will not show content to people who are not signed in. This is one of the sites Metafilter should not be providing links to at all.

If you're not signed into Instagram, links to individual posts (like most of those above) still work fine. Links to someone's profile (like the "drawing chalk murals" link above) will work too, but when you click on something or scroll down, they are interrupted by a (really annoying, undismissable) modal window.

[The separate links work ok for me, not signed into instagram, so I'm leaving this for now. If people want to discuss whether instagram links are ok, please take that over to Metatalk; thanks.]

Definitely do not need to be signed in. I'm having no trouble clicking the "Not Now" option for login and viewing the images.

These are awesome! The kids and I have been doing chalk drawings lately but not nearly this nice.
