The Highland Arts Council presents Art Expo at the Street Art Festival on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Local artists present their creations for viewing and for sale. Traditionally, there are jewelers, painters, wood artists, authors, illustrators and information from Highland Arts Parents Association (HAPA) and Highland Arts Council.
The streets of Highland become a canvas for talented artists during this one-of-a-kind festival! Carrying on a tradition started centuries ago, on Saturday, September 16, the 13th Annual Street Art Festival and Art Expo will turn the streets of downtown Highland into a temporary art gallery. Curious about Street Art?
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!
