places to smile awhile; AMASS, Santa Barbara, CA
This past weekend while on State St. in Santa Barbara, I noticed a little pop up street fair... so of course I had to go check it out! I was very pleasantly surprised to find out it was AMASS, (artists making a street scene) organized by Stateside Magazine. There were repurposed crafts and clothes and artists in action painting murals right before your eyes!! There was live music with a decent sized stage and the event was right in the middle of the street! It was really cool and I LOVED all the free flowing creative energy! This was a place with many smiles and where you could definitely smile awhile!
