Everyone attending the 7th Annual Barefoot in the Park, Fine Arts Festival is in for a amazing treat. The Barefoot Organizing Committee is excited to announce that the world renowned street painting artist, Anthony Cappetto, will be creating an original 3D painting during this year”s weekend festival. Anthony Cappetto”s visit to Barefoot is sponsored by the Georgia Gwinnett College Foundation. The college staff is thrilled to have the opportunity to partner in bringing this 3D master to the region.
Barefoot in the Park will kick-off this year”s festival with a Friday evening Art Walk to preview this year”s expanded Artists Market and a chance to meet Mr. Cappetto. Attendees will also get the first glimpse of Cappetto”s sidewalk masterpiece.
An artist from New York City, Cappetto created large pastel works on paper for exhibitions in New York City from 1997 through 2000. In 1999, on a trip to Italy, he saw pastel chalk art as street paintings and it was a natural evolution for his artwork. He has been active in street painting since 2001 and has recently been a featured 3D street painter for exhibitions and festivals in Japan, South Carolina, New York State and New York City.
Barefoot in the Park, Festival of Fine Arts, Performance and Flavors, is proud to celebrate their seventh consecutive year of bringing some of the most outstanding regional artist, entertainment, and flavors to Greater Atlanta and North Georgia. The event is held in northeast Metro Atlanta, on the Town Green in Duluth, Georgia. This year”s festival dates are May 6 – 8.
