The ninth Artistry in Decorative Concrete demonstrations took place at World of Concrete in January. Each year, creative decorative concrete contractors demonstrate their talent at the Artistry Demos. No one has been invited more than once because Concrete Construction believes there are many creative people in the industry that should present their work to attendees. Every year, the Artistry Demos display some of the best decorative projects and this year was no exception. Here are this year’s presenters and their projects:
