From the Rivercross Lawn south, artists transform the landscape with murals, created live. Sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s predicted.

Things start even earlier with a kickoff event, open to all, at Gallery RIVAA on Friday evening. There’ll be live music, light refreshments and artwork by Bogdan Matei.

But Saturday is when Fall for Arts 2019 comes alive.

Murals build live and in color while Four Freedoms Park invites all to the joys of kite-making and flying. Kite Flight for Peace and Human Rights repeats an annual event coordinated with U.N. Week.
