Photos: East End Arts Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival

The streets of downtown Riverhead were transformed into a canvas for local artists Sunday as East End Arts hosted the 16th annual Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival.

At the heart of this celebration of the arts was the street painting, an art form dating back to the 16th century. Painters 14 years of age and older were assigned squares sponsored by local businesses.
