About the Work
City Xpressions was a street art festival that celebrates urban and street art in all its dynamic and eclectic forms. For seven consecutive summers the festival transformed Ohio City’s Market Square Park with one of the city’s most vibrant and artistically rich community events.
Inspired by the miles of graffiti exhibited along Cleveland's public transit routes, the festival featured aerosol and other street artists providing them with a public space for the creation of their artworks. Activities included street level canvas painting utilizing both spray can paint and traditional painting methods, live music including bands and DJs, a break dancing competition, and an MC battle.
