The third annual The Daily City Cardboard Art Festival(Facebook | Website) is back, but with a few minor changes. Most notably that they’ve moved on from the Mills 50 stomping grounds of the Orange Studio, in favor of setting up in a vacant storefront in Downtown South’s SODO [Gmap].
Editor’s Note: Full disclosure, although I’m not involved this year, I was one of the founding directors of CAF, so it’s not a surprise that this is one of my favorite local art events.
This year’s iteration has an almost entirely new set of corrugated artists, save a few familiar faces like German Lemus and Doug Rhodehamel. The event runs for three days with pop-up performances from SAK Comedy, a DJ Dance Party hosted by DJ Nigel, kid’s activities and more.
