Entering its third year of life, Urban Scrawl manifests for an afternoon the possibilities some local artists see in the undeveloped Franklinton neighborhood.

Entering its third year of life, Urban Scrawl manifests for an afternoon the possibilities some local artists see in the undeveloped Franklinton neighborhood.

On Saturday Dodge Park will play host to 30 artists working live and mural-sized across the length of about half a football field, a lineup of nine bands, a skateboarding competition and a marketplace for local vendors.

"You can see a piece of art created from beginning to end," said artist and organizer Nikos Fyodor Rutkowski. "That's a really unique feature of this event."

Here's more on what you'll see.

The art

Four-by-eight-foot panels are erected facing a beautiful view of the Scioto and the city's skyline, with individuals and teams of artists each covering up to three across.

Adam Brouillette will continue the mural streak he started at the Ohio State Fair a couple weeks ago, while painter and toy maker Daniel Elson will be moving up a few sizes from pieces that rarely take up more than a couple of feet.

Among the other artists working solo are portraitists Ron Arps and Adam Crum, illustrators Dan Olsen and Derek Stewart, and Huevan Cox, previously seen presenting a fashion collection at last year's Highball Halloween.

Rutkowski will work in tandem with fellow painter Michael Bush and Laura Alexander, who'll be taking a break from her usual medium of etched glass. Artist-curators Coreroc (aka Ashley Voss) and Cyrus Fire will also work together, as will Chop Chop Gallery cohorts Craig Dransfield, Andrew Lundberg, David Dennison and Joey Monsoon (see more of him at Ohio Art League this October), with artist-skater O.J. Hays.

The music

One-man band Marvin the Robot launches seven hours of live music, including the Dead-ly folk rock of Main Street Gospel, the lovely strings and violins of another Alive Band to Watch, Couch Forts, electronic duo Shin Tower Music and the Southern-rock-via-Central-Ohio sounds of Deerhead. Rapper-producer Sinatra closes the show.

The stuff

Rad Dog! and Pattycake will serve up vegan delights. Other food offerings include Little Darlin' Cupcakes, soups from Lucky Ladle and tacos, smoothies and more from visiting taqueria truck La Guaguita.

Retailers Wholly Craft! And What the Rock?! will have booths, selling their goods alongside fashions from Label Yourself, bags by Gnarly Tooth and glycerin soaps in distinctive shapes from Stinky Bomb.
