Past weekend we found ourselves caught between hundreds of artists and a plethora of live acts at the 2016 annual Art On Lark festival in Albany, NY. The weather held out for the most part which we were most thankful for.
We came up with a few pros and cons of the event.
Interacting with people – One of the things we find the most important here at MFMG is the art of communication and interaction. We are a part of the community. We live, work, and play in the Capital District and are very proud to do so.
Outdoors – Who on earth wants to stay inside all the time hunched over a computer? It was beautiful and we were lucky to be there getting some sun.
Name Recognition – We got our name out there. Which is never the easiest thing to do. Especially when you’re knee deep in projects.
Poor Positioning – The outskirts of the event seemed to have a loss of traffic. Possibly positioning some of the more well known booths towards the edge to allow for smaller booths to get a little more exposure.
Music – The music seemed a little lackluster. We loved the performers but it seemed off. There were stages to both sides of the street but, there wasn’t a clear sound coming from either ends.
Rain date “date” – Looking into some of the other events that are happening around that time. There were some other high profile events around the Capital District that were happening around the same time. Leaving the street a little less full than other years.
Overall we had a lovely time. Catching up with neighbors and friends and enjoying the beautiful day just couldn’t be beat. Hope to see you next year!
