From Art on Alberta…
“This year, the 9th Annual Alberta Art Hop will take place on Saturday, May 17th. This creative/cultural arts festival is put on by the street’s local business owners and artists, coordinated by Art on Alberta. Together we create community through the power of the arts.
Each year a theme guides the project. This year’s theme is “Synergy” Artists and residents will demonstrate, using various original art forms from visual arts to fashion, what the Alberta arts district means as a community. The festival theme will throw a spotlight on what’s new and special, what lights up our eyes and our imaginations.
Every year, Art Hop chooses one artist to feature for its annual celebration, strategically placing their artwork at various locations on Alberta Street. For the 2008 Art Hop, we are conveying the idea of “synergy” by choosing three artists to represent the cultural diversity of Alberta Street. This year’s artists are Adrienne Cruz, Analee Fuentes, and Tripper Dungan. “
