Spring will bring a bit more color to West Fargo’s streets this year at COLOR FEST, hosted by the City of West Fargo. Taking place 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, April 17, in The Yards on Sheyenne, this event will offer the community a chance to join local artists to paint Sheyenne Street intersections from Second Avenue W. to Fourth Avenue W. before they are torn up for the area’s reconstruction project. The event will bring public art to West Fargo while also serving as a celebration of the transformation of the area into a more walkable, pedestrian-friendly corridor.
Local artists are encouraged to submit street artwork designs to be painted in the three intersections. The chosen artists will paint the designs on to the street during the event, and event attendees will be able to assist the artists. Selected artists will receive $400 for the use of their design, as well as painting the designs and assisting event attendees. The City of West Fargo will supply all paint and materials.
