SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - If you happened to find yourself near the Gateway Mall downtown Salt Lake City Saturday you likely saw something that's normally frowned upon by security-- skateboarding.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - If you happened to find yourself near the Gateway Mall downtown Salt Lake City Saturday you likely saw something that's normally frowned upon by security-- skateboarding.

It's just one of the way people were encouraged to express themselves at the Urban Arts Festival.

“It's pretty crazy having it here in the middle of the Gateway, I've been kicked out of here plenty of times,” said Josh, a skateboarder

From street art to break-dancing, hundreds of artists took over part of downtown capturing some by surprise.

“It's awesome,” said Chris Frary. “We came up here for a movie, but instead we got a lot of fun here, a lot of dancing.”

“I think it's awesome to come down and see all these artists have a way to have these outlets and see their talents and their craft and have a way to show it off,” said Janna Frary.

Organizers said the point behind the event is to inspire Utahns who may have otherwise had little exposure to the state's urban artistic culture.

This is the first year organizers made the event free to the public.
