This year the best art was really off the beaten path. On Saturday we visited new-to-my-family venues on the north side of town—the Women’s City Club, Lifestyle Kitchen Studio, St. Cecilia Music Center and First Park Congregational Church. We made our way down to City Hall and the Calder Plaza too, but the closer to downtown we got the more the art seemed to peter out. This year’s downtown showing is just… lacking.
Besides ArtPrize, we made homemade pasta together, took a driving tour of Heritage Hill’s huge houses, played a round of disc golf and even had time to tackle a few wedding crafts I needed extra hands for. And despite a little lackluster art seen Friday, by Sunday morning everyone left town happy.
