What do Abe Lincoln, a Waterfall along the East River in NYC and Crystal Flight all have in common? Well, they are all free, fun, and unique public art projects throughout the country. Crystal City's Crystal Flight Project was included in this brief list of fun and free public art related activities around the country.

The hot, Virginia sun and the elements can sometimes take a toll on the lifespan of certain designs. The Crystal City BID tapped Graffiti artist Kevin Irvin to give two of the Crystal Flight statues a fresh look!

Everclear just released a new album in April of this year titled "The Vegas Years." The disc features 14 recorded covers from 1994 to 2008, including versions of the Go-Go’s “Our Lips Are Sealed,” Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl” and Paul Revere & The Raiders’ “Kicks.”
The event will also feature the return of Crystal Flight graffiti artist Kevin Irvin who will modify an existing design using his funky, urban, Graffiti style! Kevin painted a plane earlier this spring at the annual Crystal Block party along 23rd's Street's Restaurant Row. See some of his work in the slideshow below. Kevin will be painting outside throughout the concert so be sure to stop by and take a look!
This is the fourth year of the concert series with past headliners that include the Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon and Big Bad Voodoo Daddies.
