Sioux City, Iowa – At the third annual Alley Art festival on Saturday, Sioux City residents could find art in an unexpected way.

The event was held in the alleyways between 4th and 5th streets, as well as Pierce and Nebraska. The alley next to the Orpheum Theater was also added this year.

For this year’s festival, almost 40 new murals in a variety of art techniques were painted. There were artists of all ages present at the event.

“It’s all-inclusive. There’s no real judgment to it. You know, it’s pretty free form. Just come out and paint, hang out in the alleys with everybody. It’s just so unique and public art like this is so important for people because it gives them a chance to share in something they might not normally share in,” the event organizer Brent Stockton said.

Live music, activities for kids, art vendors, and more were all part of the event, which included a community wall where Siouxlanders could contribute their artistic touch to a mural.
