The Washington Park District says it wanted many different forms of art to appeal to different people.

Brian Tibbs of the Washington Park District said, "We're happy that we have great diversity of artists; from metal, to photography, to pottery, to jewelry. We've drawn a wide range of artists."

The two-day festival finished a week of activities called "Clydesdale Strong".
