Mormon Chalk Graffiti In Freimann Square

On the evening of the Fourth of July in 2015, the pavement in Fort Wayne's Freimann Square was covered in sidewalk chalk drawings and religious messages written by Mormon missionaries. The website address for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, mormon.org, was included in several of the drawings and blocks of writings.

This one, showing the progression of life from birth, to life, to death, was part of a larger block of images and text about the two possibilities for the afterlife (Heaven or Hell).

This isn't the first time that I have seen sidewalk chalk used to spread religion. I've always wondered if stuff like this actually wins converts, or does it just make the people doing it feel like they're "Doing Something" for God?

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
