Last night brought the third installment in this year's Art Slam series on Main Street in Newhall.

This month's themed art installation was “Art of the Human Form," celebrating the beauty of the human figure.

A total of 14 exhibits were presented on Main Street in Newhall Thursday evening, including a live fashion model photo shoot, an exhibit of photographs of photographers presented by David Green entitled “The Other Side of the Lens” and a live acrylic painting demonstration of live models dressed as the characters of Dorothy and Toto from “The Wizard of Oz.”

The next Art Slam is planned for the first Thursday of June.

Downtown Newhall would be a ghost town if the city didn't promote the many events on Main Street.

Still looks like a ghost town.... do you see any people in these pics besides the artists?

It doesn't look like a single person is there besides the artists. I hope the tumbleweeds blowing through didn't give them too many problems.

I went but there was no place to park.

Maybe a couple of 60-foot digital billboards along Main St. advertising this amazing art slam might be appropriate? What say you, Kellar? I'll give you another $20 to stick in your already stuffed pockets.
