so then, why not just call it what it is:

an art show.  

after all, its not a contest with arbitrary judges and ribbons and medals and trophies... is it ?  Wink

again, beautiful and each year gets better.

@ quatrefi
Really nice, this show has gotten better and better each year. I like it. I like the concept. I wish I could see this in person. In terms of future improvement, continue to pay attention to the visual clutter in the background. I bet in person it is unobtrusive, but in photographs, which collapse to 2 dimensions the spacial elements, the visual clutter of the backgrounds could still use improvement. Though this year is 300% better than the first year. I really like this use of an urban space. Thank you for posting.

I feel a scouting trip coming on, I'm thinking just north of National Ave, east of 27 th Street. Or the now closed bronze & brass foundry east of the Allen Bradley clock tower. Interesting idea.

I also think we need to see the resource that is already available to us, just made available end of 2013, the Sculpture Garden and park on the north side.

Loving the Urban Bonsai concept. It's much like the Internet Bonsai Club concept. A fun, contemporary way to open up this art form to not just the niche hobbyist, but to the entire community. Urban Bonsai looks like a colorful festival atmosphere that makes it fun for the entire family and community. Without the children and community participation in Asian festivals, there would be no artisans to left to carry on the beautiful traditional art forms.

For instance, in mainland China, the society has undergone so many cultural revolutions that it has been difficult to restore Imperial artifacts without locating artisan families who still possess the marquetry and tapestry skills.

Bravo!
