On Saturday, September 17th, the Annapolis Design District hosted its second annual Art In Action Street Festival. Craftspeople and their handicrafts, food vendors, live music, and hundreds upon hundreds of local residents filled the festival area.

The key attraction was the live mural painting curated by Urban Walls Brazil. On the corner of Edgewood Street and Virginia Avenue, DC-based artists Mas Paz and Miss Chelove created an imaginative mural entitled Water Is Life featuring an enchanting mermaid and a sea turtle.
