Laurent Dareau affixed tiles to a courtyard wall he’s decorating with painted faces, abstract mosaic designs and mirrors. Across the way, Anouck Jourdaa worked on a mural depicting a sleeping Titania from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The event is scheduled to open with a by-invitation reception Thursday and continue through May 29 in and around Bouaziz’s complex at 925 N. Railroad Ave.
Artists will decorate about 20 shipping containers installed on nearby vacant lots, where they will sell their work. More than 50 artists are expected to participate.
