A quick tour of Art Murmur’s handmade treasures
on April 4, 2011
On the first Friday of each month, Art Murmur draws hundreds of art lovers who not only tour local galleries, but are in search of unique handcrafted creations. The vendors who set up shop along 23rd Street sell everything from antique jewelry made from objects found with a metal detector to miniature paintings depicting animals with humanistic behavior.
Click on each of the photos above to learn about each artist’s inspiration behind their handmade baubles.
