The public was welcome to pick up a brush and plate of paints to create and share its own art for the thousands of event goers at the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. happening now. I spotted this young man silhouetted against the bright sun-lit day adding his touch to one of several blank wooden “canvases” under the shade trees.

Graffiti Eyes


Graffiti Eyes

Despite the heat, my kids and I spent yesterday strolling around the 2012 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the Mall in Washington, D.C. A cultural fusion of art, crafts, music and food, the event is a treasure trove of photographic ops. The vibrant color and energy of the graffiti art caught my lens, starting with the penetrating eyes of this work by Jay Coleman. My next several posts will feature scenes from this day of eclectic delights.
