Art takes center stage during Sixth Street's Art Walk
Carol Klein demonstrated the art of glass bead-making
Sixth Street's Art Walk brought culture from the galleries to the pavement Saturday, with demonstrations, hands-on opportunites and arts and crafts sales.
Although the reconstruction of Sixth isn't done yet -- the two-year process should be completed some time in November -- the street was in better shape than we expected. Much of the new brick sidewalk is done and most of the galleries were accessible. But the real attraction was the tents in the roadway, with crafts and demonstrations, and the two stages with music and performers.
All in all, two major events in one Downtown today.
