Whimsical lesbian sculptor is featured artist for 2009 downtown art festival

DumptyCreations
Kimber Fiebiger nestled amid her award-winning Humpty Dumpty creations.

In 2008, bronze sculptor Kimber Fiebiger earned first-place honors the very first time she participated in Bayou City Art Festival Downtown, wowing the crowd with her Texas-sized Humpty Dumpty creations. She triumphantly returns as the enviable featured artist of the 2009 fine art event in downtown Houston.

Enviable, indeed. As many as 850 national and international artists vied for 300 juried positions, which is up by nearly 20 percent over 2008, the previous all-time high.
“The Bayou City Art Festival is rated one of the top shows in the country, and the Texas economy is far stronger than the rest of the country,” Fiebiger says. “I’m giddy about the sales, I’m giddy about the attention, and I’m giddy about the weather, because I’m from Minnesota!”

Fiebiger knows what she’s talking about. Bayou City Art Festival Downtown recently won eight 2009 Texas Festivals & Events Association honors, including six first-place honors, at the organization’s annual conference in Fort Worth.

Owner of the Joan of Art gallery in Minneapolis, Fiebiger plans to attend the festival with her partner and “booth assistant,” Michelle Hoffman.

For the first time since the downtown festival’s inception in 1992, art lovers can stroll downtown’s new pedestrian promenades to interact with artists one-on-one. The festival stretches to Houston Public Library’s Downtown Plaza and Sam Houston Park to encompass Capital One Bank’s Creative Zone and international food and wine cafés. The Houston Arts Alliance stage provides continuous entertainment and art demonstrations; the “Art on Water” floating art installation at City Hall’s Hermann Square Reflection Pool rounds out the attractions. October 10 and 11, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. $10. bayoucityartfestival.com. —Nancy Ford
