Art in Bayfront Festival Park Kicks Off

Art Festival Begins Thursday, Coinciding With Tall Ships

Aside from the Tall Ships making their way in to the Northland on Thursday, Art in Bayfront Park begins as well.

The event runs from 11a.m. until 7p.m. Thursday, and 9a.m. until 5p.m. from Friday through Sunday.

Local Artist Ryan Pedersen stopped by FOX 21 Sunrise Thursday, to speak about the festival and showcase his unique metal art.

Working alongside his father, James Pedersen, Ryan uses steel, brass, and other types of elements to create beautiful works of art.

The metal is buffed, hammered, grinded and welded on until the piece becomes a landscape of perfection.

Ryan and his father make pieces of all sizes, from small to extra large.

If you would like to contact Ryan, send him an email at
