The artists will line North Highland Street from 13th Street North past Wilson Boulevard, Clarendon Boulevard and the metro station, and will end on Washington Boulevard. All artists will be on site for the duration of the show, available to discuss their art, techniques and inspiration.

An Art Giveaway will give festival patrons an opportunity to win original artwork by participating artists Connie and Jimmy Langford. This couple specializes in metal, paying close attention to texture and color while creating very unique and bold works of art. The giveaway prize, a hand etched and colored 18" x 18" stainless steel wall sculpture titled "Going Wild With Color," is valued at $450. It will be on display at their booth throughout the weekend.
