I was checking out the amazing art at the 18th annual Carmel International Arts Festival. The streets were filled with rows and rows of artist booths, delicious food (I loved the Market District food truck) and live music. The festival has a longstanding tradition of promoting cultural enrichment by bringing together more than 130 juried artists showing all kinds of work. I could not resist purchasing two whimsical dog prints from artist Susan Kline from Peru, Ind., and a new Heartland Film Festival scarf to sport at its upcoming festival. The Young at Art area, sponsored by the Carmel Arts Council, allowed young children to use their creativity to design their very own print art. Yep, I even sat down next to young Lucas Dillon of Carmel and whipped up my own special ‘Where’s Amy?’ print to commemorate the day.
