COLUMBIA - The two-day Columbia Art in the Park Festival kicked off Saturday at Stephens Lake Park. A couple hundred people showed up to browse the dozens of vendor tents.

The feature artist was Ms. Fan Yun. Fan Yun creates works of art out of carefully cut leaves and paper cups. She spends about four hours to make each paper cup and about two hours to make each leaf.

Fan Yun went to a special art school in China to further develop her skills. She's been doing her trade for more than 30 years.
