The ten-day, outdoor POP X art festival started today at Liberty Plaza Park in downtown Ann Arbor. 

A recording of water streaming is the first thing you hear when you enter the one square foot pavilion sponsored by the Ann Arbor Women Artists.  The pop-up room is decorated with cupcakes, fruit and other goodies you would find at a picnic.  

Artist Mary Murphy helped put the exhibit together out of paper mache, steel and glass.  Murphy says the life of an artist could be lonely while working on pieces so she enjoyed working with other artists on this project.

Art & Soul is a new feature from 89.1 WEMU that looks at the visual arts experience happening in our community.

  It focuses on the rich and vibrant art scene available locally with information on what's happening now, soon and what's coming up around town.
  This week I spoke with Omari Rush from the Ann Arbor Art Center about a new outdoor art festival called Pop-X. It's an outdoor exhibition of art in downtown Ann Arbor's Liberty Plaza Park and it launches on October 15th.
