This diverse exhibition will showcase artworks ranging from all shapes, sizes and genres. In 2013, we featured a wide range of works such as large interactive sculptures (i.e. hanging cardboard marionette puppet and a full-sized cardboard space car) and wearable cardboard art (cardboard dinosaur masks) to small whimsical pieces (cardboard owls and cats). We are excited to see what diverse and creative pieces this year brings!
This event is a juried exhibition with a fully equipped sales desk and curation team. Last year, during the inaugural event, we had over 1500 people come through our doors throughout the weekend, with almost 1000 of those people coming on the first night!

Along with creating Cardboard Art Festival, Mark has created The Food Truck Bazaar, Night Market, Mobile Art Show, Orlando Improv Festival, and Audience Choice Awards. He was named by Orlando Business Journal a 40 Under 40 Award Winner in 2012. The Orlando Weekly said about Mark, "If everyone in Orlando who claims to care about the arts had 1 percent of Baratelli’s energy and commitment, this city would be a world culture capital." That same newspaper named him "2011 Best Local Advocate" and "2010 Best Arts Advocate."

Her art has been seen throughout Orlando in various shops, boutiques, restaurants and galleries including the Orlando Museum of Art.

In 2013 the creators of Dog Powered Robot had 13 cardboard robots on display and a special cardboard Space Racer car they built just for the festival. The robots rocked out with Andy Matchett and The Minks on the final day of the festival.
Eat, drink, dance, talk with artists, buy art, watch a concert, interact with the art, make new friends, marvel at invention. The Daily City Cardboard Art Festival has it all!
