San Fernando Road got a beauty makeover this weekend as dozens of artists shared their work at the Downtown Burbank Fine Arts Festival.
The artists and hundreds of art lovers took over San Fernando Road between Olive Avenue and Magnolia Boulevard, which was closed to traffic Saturday and Sunday.
Burbank resident Lisa Burks strolled among the booths, finding some one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts and a little inspiration to boot.
"It makes me want to go home and be crafty," she said.
Works ranged from statuary and inlaid wood furniture to photographs, watercolor paintings and more.
Street painters, using chalk as their medium and San Fernando Road as their canvas, sketched out works to be started and completed during the fair.
Susanne Ma said she has worked at fairs from Santa Clarita, where she lives, to the Saratoga Chalk Festival held last month in Florida. She said she enjoys the Burbank fair, where artists are not asked to draw on a designated theme or create a piece of a certain size.
