Creative Crossings: Street Art Competition is a live art contest that will take place along Dauphin Street during the TenSixtyFive music festival on September 30th. Six local artists - James Currie, conz8000, Rando Dixon, Soynika Edwards, Kathleen Kirk Stoves, and Kym Vanover Brown - have been chosen to create masterpieces in the crosswalks (stretching between Washington Street and Cathedral Square) during the festival. The artists will use temporary materials provided by the Mobile Arts Council. Artists will have from 11 AM to 5 PM to create their designs. The designs will then be judged and prizes will be awarded at 6 PM. The goal of “Creative Crossings” is to provide a live visual arts component to the TenSixtyFive festival, enhance the pedestrian experience, and add public art to downtown Mobile. Artists will have from 11 AM to 5 PM to create their designs. The designs will then be judged and prizes will be awarded at 6 PM. The winning artist will r eceive a prize of $600! In addition, the designs could potentially be chosen to become permanent artistic crosswalks installed in Mobile.
