Art Festival

Last Sunday, my sister Karen and I attended the Arts Festival in Salt Lake. It was on the grounds of the Salt Lake City Library and Washington Square. I was glad to attend this year, the last time I went was maybe few years back with my nephew and niece. But this year was pretty cool,We visited some art booths, ate some teriyaki chicken and of course down some with beer, ahh it was a good day and a good day off. This year, I was really surprised they served wine too! I was really please they had other option than beer, soft drinks and water.  they had some cool artists, food vendors, and different range of  music. The festival was a bit expensive it cost $12 bucks to get in, the food and of course if wanna buy art. My sister Karen and I signed up for workshop at the Leonardo, to make a book out of recycled items but unfortunately the class was canceled at the last minute. I was very disappointed because I was looking forward to making something that I really enjoyed. Luckily, we got our refunds back and use that towards drinks haha! It was nice sunny day; high in the 80's with clouds and cool winds here and there even though I don't like being sun that much. So yea, I actually had a good day off and enjoyed my time off at the festival. I can't wait for more festivities this summer.
I'm not sure who was the artist who did this graffiti but I like this kind of art, it was located at the young adult area.
I thought this was cool, I think they panels and put it all together.

Karen and I made buttons from magazines, it cost $3 to make a button. It was a good cause I didn't mind paying that much. Craft Lake city sponsored the event.
this is what I picked out, I was buzzin at the time but at least I was enjoying my time doing it haha.
Ta-Dahhh! A finished product, I love my little pin. I will remember my time at the festival.
This is the band called Minx, they played in one of the stage at the festival. They were a pretty neat sounding group, they kinda reminded me of the sound of the 80's or so. The girl had a good voice, I liked their sound.
this was in the Leonardo, looking up, they had some installation of some floating thing on the ceiling, pretty neat.
my contribution to the art fest, a little doodle that was located in the Leonardo. they had art stations located in the Leonardo where you can add your art.
Ahhh,thank art fest you made my Sunday. I had a great time. Hopefully we see each other next year.
