As this blog owner does every single year, I took some time out to stop buy, and actually make a few purchases too, the annual Three Rivers Arts Festival in Downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
Here are a couple of scenes I would like to share with you.
One of the first things I noticed before even entering the main area was the beautiful decorated trash receptacles. How creative is that?
Outside the vending area, a group of musicians calling themselves the 4th River Musical Collective played for the crowd.
Hou-Tien Cheng, a master paper cutter, is a festival regular. I once bought a silhouette of a wolf off of him.
I just loved this quote at a vendor’s tent. it says a lot about life.
This collection of public art by Fernando Orellana is called “Confluence” and was located in the waters along the underpass entering the inner section of the city’s Point State Park.
Although not part of the festival, this mural lines the wall of the station in which I caught the subway to ride home. It seemed like a fitting end of the day.
