The great tradition of street painting began in Italy in the 16th century. A crowd would gather whenever a traveling artist began transforming the pavement into a colorful work of art. Although the masterpiece only lasted until the next rain, the tradition of street painting has endured, and we invite you to be part of this timeless experience!
Mark your calendars for the 2023 Street Art Fest on September 16!
