When a pink slip brought Aaron Coleman's 8-to-5 office life to an end four years ago, the KC man unleashed his creative energy on paintings bursting with color. Coleman's work joins pieces by 150 other local and national artists and crafters for the juried Downtown Art Annual
, in the Power & Light District (14th Street and Walnut). The free festival includes live music and runs 5-9 p.m. today, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday. See artfestival.com
