Art Festival takes over downtown

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) The streets of downtown Grand Junction were filled with art Friday and Saturday, closing off some streets to cars around the area.

Oil paintings, watercolors, stitching and just about any kind of art you can imagine were all over downtown. It was the second annual art festival. There were about 30 artists and vendors, and plenty of choices for people to pick and choose to fill their homes.

"Art, it brings people together when there's a lot of chaos," Amanda Reece, artist, said. "Sometimes you can just have a snippet of colors that might take you back to a memory, and for me this it brings out a lot of memories and if I can bring joy to somebody else's life, even better."

Community streets encouraged people to get outside and take alternative transportation to the event, like biking or walking from place to place.
