At 11 a.m. today, the city Department of Transportation was poised to start service on a special Artscape route of the Charm City Circulator, roughly following the perimeter of the sprawling festival.

Overnight for the next 10 months, work to replace aging rubber bridge joints and damaged concrete barriers will close lanes intermittently along large stretches of the highway, officials said. The $5 million project will cause delays, and officials urge drivers to use alternate routes or plan added travel time.

  The Wisconsin-style fried cheese curds are back at Artscape . You can find them at Stella Jeanne's Festival Foods booth, which is near the Lyric theater on Mount Royal Avenue but facing the Mount Royal Station stage. Above is the Baltimore Sun cheese-curd finder. Curds are a by-product of the cheese-making process. They have a consistency most people describe as squeaky. And the perfect thing to do with them -- fry them. The folks that make them are based in Philadelphia but the wife, who is expecting a child any day now, is from the Midwest, where cheese curds are huge.

To understand what Fred Lazarus accomplished during his 35 years as president of the Maryland Institute College of Art , one need only look at the gleaming concrete-and-glass structure housing the school's Brown Center for new media. The rakishly angled building rising above the school's Mount Royal Avenue campus symbolizes the future of both art and higher education in America as surely as the stately neoclassical building across the street from it reflects its past. Mr. Lazarus, who announced this week that he will step down as president in 2014, had the genius to see that future and the skill to build it in Baltimore.

Undeterred by the wet weather, thousands strolled Saturday among the art displays, the crafts tables and the Italian sausage vendors of Artscape. "I think it's great," said Jerry Fields, keeping dry under a poncho fashioned of plastic garbage bags. "It's free, the music's still going on. It would be better if it were 75 and sunny, but we're having a good time. " The first full day of the mostly outdoor festival opened under heavy rains Saturday morning, with thunderstorms forecast for the afternoon.

Three-year-old Elijah Thomas had just seen a face. And he couldn't have been more excited. "Look, look," Elijah implored, turning his head to his mother and pointing at a 15-foot metal face about 20 feet away, its mouth opening and closing as the youngster tugged on a metal joystick. "It closed! It closed!" Elijah's mom, Erika Taylor, laughed and smiled, delighted. "He's having a blast," she said, realizing that the toughest part of her family's visit to Artscape on Friday afternoon would be separating Elijah from the mechanical face that was fast becoming his new BFF. But that's what happens when you hand over control of a 15-foot stainless steel face to a steady stream of Artscapers.

With a kiddy Grand Prix race, a gathering of videogame programmers and artists, and plenty of hands-on arts and crafts, this year's Artscape will offer plenty of family-friendly activities. In fact, Artscape director Kathy Hornig has made it a mission to offer families plenty of free options at the three-day event. "They've evolved over the years," Hornig said about the offerings. "When I first started, there were things for kids to do, but they cost money. We've worked very hard to make sure that parents can come down and have something the whole family can do for free.
