The Lower Manhattan Art Festival or LoMan Fest is an annual outdoor street art event organized by the LISA Project and Sticker Social Club. The second iteration of the festival saw artist vendors, a live art competition and beer and tacos by event sponsor Modelo. On the day I went, the lot was packed throughout the day and it was a great time seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones as well. Artwork on the walls included work by Chris RWK, Giz, Ron English, Above, and Invader.
Check out this great video of the event created by Ali Powell.
