Art Festival on Walnut Street

August 23 2014 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Free

Saturday marks the first day of the 17th Annual Art Festival on Walnut Street in Shadyside. Though many Pittsburgh natives are well acquainted with Shadyside and its charming architecture and beautiful greenery, this festival is one in a series of art festivals taking place across the country, organized by Howard Alan Events, which has arranged festivals from Hilton Head, SC., to Aspen, CO. What better neighborhood—what more charming avenue—could be chosen? As the official Howard Alan page notes, “Shadyside features boutiques, shops and galleries mingled with national retailers in a neighborhood of tree-line streets, historic homes, hip events, and distinctive restaurants.” Indeed. The featured giveaway for this weekend’s festivities is a mixed media 3D painting by Luisa Velasquez, aptly titled “Flor Roja,” which translates to “red flower” for non-bilingual readers. Impressively, Velasquez is one in over a hundred artists in a wide range of disciplines (painting, jewelry, photography, and many more). Today, running from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. and tomorrow, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Free.  Walnut Street business district, Shadyside.
