You areinvited to create joyful places together through three Pop-Up Art Stations around town. Our themed stations will focus on involvement and connection with all who join in. Let’s bring art into the streets!
These Pop-Up Art Stations are located here:
Patio by the River
The Museum Lawn
What’s the theme?
Artful Streets invites everyone to be part of the art-making at Gallery Walk, creating inclusive experiences of participatory arts and social engagement. Occupying spaces throughout town Pop-Up Art Stations will feature local artists and cultural organizations, offering activities based on a monthly theme.
The line-up for Pop-Up Art Stations:
May: What’s the Word? – After a long year of separation, we’ll honor & celebrate with words through art, poetry, games and love notes.
June: Let’s Move!- Let’s shake off the long year in our homes, and dance, circus, and move in the streets. Learn a few moves or a whole new dance.
July: Step Up to the Mic- Do you have an original song, poem, short story, or joke you’ve been dying to try out on an audience? Arrive early to sign-up for your spot in the lineup.
August: Game On!- We’ll have your favorite oversized board games around town. Have an idea for a game? Bring it along and try it out on some willing players.
September: Technicolor Town- Let’s make our town colorful! Have you ever had an idea of how to make a spot in our downtown more vibrant, engaging, playful, and just plain cool?
October: Eye See You, Brattleboro- Together let’s tell the bigger story of the people and places of our town. Through all media, let’s create a collective self-portrait of Brattleboro.
