Festival Di Ragazze
A 400-year-old tradition visits Orem, Utah every Summer in Orem at the Riverwoods Shopping Center. Get that Italian street pain feeling at the Festival Di Ragazze Italian Street Painting Festival, a celebration of arts, music and cuisine.
Watch the streets be transformed into a color-splashed asphalt gallery at the hands of hundreds of professional and amateur artists.
It was nice to see many of the artists were from my beloved California (where this type of Festivals are a lot more common than in Utah)
At this creative project paint the streets Italian style, the shopping mall streets get subdivided into 200 pavement squares sponsored by businesses, organizations and individuals. Local artists are invited to become "madonnari," or street painters, and to fill their pavement canvasses with their own unique inspirations.
