City Expressions 2008

Cleveland Public Art and Cleveland area Scion Dealerships held the 7th annual City Xpressions Street Art Festival this past weekend in Market Square Park - Lorain Avenue at West 25th.
It was also the last weekend for Open Air in Market Square - Cleveland's only urban outdoor market. If you've never gone to it - you should make it point to go next year! It's every Saturday in the summer and there's always a wonderful variety of live music, performers, artists, and such a diverse group of people. I've met some wonderful people (and wonderful dogs!) here this summer.

Here's a glimpe at the aerosol artists at work this weekend! This is Denis DeVerteuil - working on "Bob" - the purple guy. Love this one!
It's a family affair! Artist John Forgus has help from his (really sweet) kids, Kyle, Paige and Bryson.
Ryan & Sam - probably the youngest of the artists had a fabulously colorful display!

It turned out to be a great day with perfect weather.. unlike last year when it stormed halfway through. Make it a point to stop down next year! It's always big fun!

oh.. and here's a shot of two of the friends I've made this summer.... Deby (Deby's Designs)

and John - who's a blast and just wonderfully helpful.
