Each year, the Avenues Street Fair Committee selects a different local artist to create an original painting or digital work of art that represents the artist’s concept of what “the Avenues” means to them. This image becomes our visual theme for the Street Fair. Featured Artist artwork is printed on t-shirts, bags and in digital and print media. The Featured Artist also has a booth at the fair, where you can see (and possibly purchase) the original artwork, as well some of their other work.
The choice for 2016 was Caroleine James. Her work was on Street Fair posters around the neighborhood. Fair goers were also be able to buy Caroleine's work on a T-shirt at the GACC Booth, with proceeds going to the general fund.
