Demonstrations

Each year, Art on the Avenue hosts several artist demonstration tents where artists are invited to not only sell their work, but to actively demonstrate it throughout the day.

Artist Demonstrations will be held in the empty grass lot between the businesses of Bean Creative and Kiskadee, between Del Ray Ave and Custis Ave, on the east side of Mt. Vernon Ave.
