After CANVAS outdoor show, there continues to “Be Art”


“Be Art” by Laura Kimpton


Back words

The Canvas Outdoor Museum Show has furled its official events for the year but leaves behind a wealth of art downtown and in Northwood, including some that’s still in the works.

“Be Art,” the Laura Kimpton piece that invites viewers to connect with it, is almost done, with all five letters in place beside North Flagler Drive near the Darth Vader building. It’s partly hidden behind construction materials from the Flagler Memorial Bridge project, but you can sneak a peak by walking around the west side of the building.

There are too many good pieces to mention, but also be sure to check out the murals under the middle bridge, visible only from the sidewalk, or from the water. There are some nice pieces by South Florida artists, as well, in Northwood, painted on the sides of shipping containers.
