GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Bruce Museum’s 34th annual Outdoor Arts Festival takes place rain or shine on Museum grounds in Greenwich on Columbus Day weekend.
The hours are Saturday, Oct. 10, and Sunday, Oct. 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
More than 90 artists from across the country, many new to the Bruce Museum festival, will be showcased this year.
The juried works will include painting on canvas, board and paper, mixed media in 2D and 3D, drawings and graphics, including digital media, sculpture and photography. All works will be available for purchase, and artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
“The Bruce Museum's Outdoor Arts Festival has been ranked in the top 100 nationally among Fine Arts Fairs, drawing strong competition among artists who want to participate in the show,” says Sue Brown Gordon, the Festival’s organizer.
“We are delighted this year to be welcoming many new artists and award-winning veterans to the festival. What makes this festival so special is that it is an originals-only show. The works being displayed are considered one-of-a-kind and of collectible merit.”
The event will also have live music, varied menu offerings and children’s art activities. Festival admission is $8, which includes admission to the Bruce Museum galleries. The festival is free to Bruce Museum members and children younger than 5.
