Plan to attend the 3rd Avenue Arts Fest, the first summer festival in Cambria City to highlight the artistic talent of our region! It's family friendly and FREE! Announcing Johnstown's First Italian Street Painting Exhibit featuring Holly Foy, artist and 17-year coordinator of the State College Street Painting Festival. Read more about Holly's personal passion for street painting: www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/street-painting-a-shared-experience-at-arts-festival,1468463/ Holly will be joined by for local artists creating their own street masterpieces including @[1077137244:2048:Chris Tower], Harry Price, and Jaime Helbig. Watch art come to life! Kid's can create their own street piece for everyone to see! With a $5 donation, children get a watercolor kit to show off thier talents. About the Art of Street Painting: It is believed that street painters, known as Madonnari, date back to 13th century Italy. Some say Giotto, born just north of Florence, was a Madonnaro. A Madonnaro referred to a vendor who sold religious artifacts, while in the south it is believed that the Madonnaro was a street painter, using stones and simple chalks to create his images. After World War II, Italy discouraged the Madonnari and tried to eliminate the art form which was considered an image of poverty. However, in 1973 the first street painting event, Incontro Nazionale dei Madonnari, premiered in the Italian village of Grazie di Curtatone to provide a legitimate and legal venue for the handful of traditional Madonnari still painting the streets and sidewalks of Italy. Today, the tradition lives on at festivals and events around the world, and now...in Cambria City, Johnstown! The 3rd Avenue Arts Fest will also feature the 50 Years of Living Artzy Exhibit by Dan Eash. Dan will have a booth inside the Artworks Building (the larger building), where he will sell pottery and repurposed mirrors. Dan will also demonstrate wheel thrown pottery.
