I don't have a lot to say about it, partly because I learned to hate art critics back during my performing days and partly because, if I dig in, I tend towards the hypercritical myself.
But I will say that some of the artists, who weren't identified with particular pieces though they all looked like work by specific artists, did a particularly awesome job and everybody made strong contributions. Overall it was a great community event.
Here are some responses and photographs from other folks around town:
Heather at IndieNC Blog interviewed many of the artists and posted some nice pics after the first weekend.
Grayson Currin writes about the audio cd, The Bain Music Project.

On a somber note:
Folks from Toxic Free NC shared some thoughts at New Raleigh regarding lead hazards on the site and I don't recall seeing any warnings when I attended. That's a bad look for the project and the artists involved, imho. They should have had a very visible warning sign at the entrance explaining the dangers and how to conduct oneself.
