I have heard of SPARKcon activities for awhile but I have not had a chance to see what they are all about. I did not have any interest about the event when I first heard of it a few years back. I thought it was just some artists getting together and have their works displayed. There are many art show events around the area every now and then and thought this event just like others. I just left it at that.
This year, I happened to be in the area at night and did not expect the event took place early on. Although there are no activities by most of the artists at the time except for performances but their works were there. I learned one of the SPARKcon activities was artists came to create and showed their works live at the event. Their works are incredible. I was impressed. I changed my early thinking about the event and wished I could see these artists early on and watch them creating the works. Perhaps that is for next year. These are few bits from SPARKcon 2013.
This is the first piece of work that came across. She was my first impression. She was beautiful. The snake around her neck is a colorful accessory though I am a concern of its squeezing her neck 🙂
This is a view of canvas the SPARKcon artists put their work down.
Beautiful long rainbow hair lady.
The mid way along the Fayetteville street hosted live performances where people circled around to watch. Kids and adults were enjoying the show.
There was not much of a private back stage. The lovely lady was preparing to take the stage (street) next.
The performers just finished their turn.
I am not sure what the role this man at the event but he stood there and kept people out of the way for the performers. He spot me with my camera and gave me a good pose for the photo.
These audiences enjoyed the events their own way…
Another photog was getting some shots of the show. He was more serious than me.
People enjoyed the art works on the street. I like how the young lady holding a form box and was trying to take a picture at the same time.
You can also ride around in this. Looks like fun to get on one.
I walked pass one of the restaurants on Fayetteville street. The menu looks interesting.
Some people must got there by bicycles.
I think I froze these people.

This is how a restaurant keeps the chairs at night.
This one isn’t related to the event. The object was just interesting to me.
I hope you have a bit of fun with me 🙂
