Artists Let Imaginations Soar in Street Painting Festival

My advice for any city that wants to give its downtown area an instant upgrade and have a lot of fun in the process – hold a street painting festival like Lake Worth, Florida does every year. Just block off a street, offer some cool prizes for the best creations, and then let a bunch of artist do their thing. Thanks to my friend and amateur photographer, Beth Angell, I have a nice collection of photos that show what happens when artists let their imaginations go wild. These pics are from Lake Worth’s street painting festival held in February, 2012, and the artwork is amazing. My favorites are the works featuring pop culture characters such as Michael Corleone from the film, The Godfather, but they’re all outstanding works of art. Do any of these images strike you as especially creative? Let me know your favorites! (All photo credit: Beth Angell)
