Yesterday we wandered through the IX Art Park for the first time. It's a great use of a previously idle space. Open to anyone, quirky, creative, positive, kid-friendly, and full of potential. I look forward to it's continued evolution. Fleaville was also in progress, a really cool artisan/antique fair. I wish I would have taken some photos of the wares on display, but the sun was intense and we eventually found ourselves retreating to dan's nearby office.
Things like this make me so pleased with Charlottesville. For a town of its size, it has a lot going on, and a really great art vibe. Not to mention the beauty of the mountains and the surrounding rural communities. It really is a sweet spot!
I have a few more photos in my Flickr Set.
