…they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I guess that would apply to the world of art and a lot of it went on display over the weekend at the 60th Anniversary of the 3 Rivers Arts Festival. They say a half a million people will converge on Point State Park to take in the art, music, food and fun which is free and open to the public and unfortunately a few undesirables too after after reports of stolen works of art worth thousands of dollars from various venders. The artist market alone features 350 artists and one such artist wants you to see the beauty of discarded flip flops. He collected what you and I would see as garbage on the beach and transformed them into sculptures of various animals, a virtual flip flop zoo. He took flip flops and recycled them into turtles, giraffes, elephants and other animals that are on display at the 60th anniversary of the Pittsburgh Arts Festival till Sunday but what you wont see is my only contribution to the world of art which was when I was in the 9th grade.
