Artist “Leaves” Mark in Crane Alley

Champaign artist Lori Caterini (of Bow-Dacious String Band) has taken it upon herself to induce the time-honored autumn tradition of playing in leaves by deliberately dumping over 250 bags of them into Crane Alley (the actual alley) in downtown Urbana.

According to a small grassroots press release via email, the exhibit lasts only for today and is “at your disposal for dragging feet, breathing fabulous fall smells, and generally having fun.”

Get down there soon because they’ll be raking up the pile of leaves around 5:45 p.m.

Crane Alley intersects Main St. in downtown Urbana between Elm St. and Goose Alley.
