Creative minds never fail to captivate people. Many attendees came back several times to watch the progress as artist presenters demonstrated their abilities at the 2009 Artistry in Decorative Concrete demonstrations located in the outdoor Decorative Pavilion at World of Concrete. The range of projects demonstrated the greatest variety of any of the past seven years of the demos. In all, 7600 visitors attended the event—watching the work, sharing ideas and problems with the presenters, and hopefully going home wondering how to be more creative with their own work. The Decorative Concrete Council, a council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors, also staffed an “Ask the Expert” booth so that people could discuss technical issues.
All in all, the Artistry Demos displayed the best that decorative concrete has to offer, featuring some of the most innovative representatives of this inspired work.
