Kingston Street Art Festival

I stopped by Douglas Fluhrer park during my lunch to witness the start of the first (and hopefully annual) street art festival for the City of Kingston. Here are just a couple photos that capture what I saw.

One of the highlights of my time was sharing a conversation about the value of street art to a community; more specifically how street art is accessible to all and is not financially limiting.

I hope you can plan to join the artists, passionate community organizers and myself on August 23 from 3 - 8 pm for what will be a wonderful day celebrating culture in this beautiful natural, urban space.

I had a wonderful time celebrating the creativity of women artists in our community Sunday afternoon at the Women's Art Festival.

I've been attending for 3 years: another year, another enjoyable event! Thank-you to all the exhibitors and attendees for deepening culture in our city.
