Farrar has been accepting submissions from other alley artists in the neighborhood, not to mention scouting the area for creative works that havent bothered to enter. Now hes got more than a dozen entries, comprising installations, painted garages and other miscellaneous artistic alley endeavors throughout his Park Hill neighborhood. There are no hard-and-fast rules, of course, he says. The goofier the better. During todays parade of homes and the accompanying street fair, which runs along Forest Parkway between 19th Avenue and Montview Boulevard, Farrar will set up a booth to announce the winners. Connoisseurs of outsider art and curiosity-seekers alike are encouraged to come down, enjoy the fair and wander the alleys to view the entrants.
While youre down there, check out the historic Park Hill Home Tour of seven homes with historic value and architectural interest. Tickets for the tour are $12 in advance, or $15 the day of the tour. For more info, visit www.gphc.org.
