Epsilon Spires, Gallery in the Woods, Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery, Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, Mitchell•Giddings Fine Arts, Vermont Artisan Designs, Harmony Collective, River Gallery School of Art, 118 Elliot, Wheelhouse Clay Center, First Proof Press and Insight Photography. Quite the collection!

Join in at Pop-Up Art Stations around town during Gallery Walk.  Our themed stations will focus on involvement and connection with all. Let’s bring art into the streets!

The line-up for Pop-Up Art Stations:

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.

AUGUST: Game On!

1.) Play + Eat Like a Squirrel @Whetstone Path in front of Brattleboro Food Coop

Let squirrels teach us how to move and eat well! These sweet critters love to play and forage for healthy snacks, tasty for humans too. The Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center will show videos of baby squirrels at play, inspiring games for us to play. The Brattleboro Food Co-op will teach us how to make tasty squirrel snacks with nuts and berries.


2.) The Brattleboro Trivia Show @
Brattleboro History Center + Museum (on the lawn at 196 Main Street next to Gallery #4) 

Step up to the mic and show off your Brattleboro Brains. with local historians. What is the Abenaki name for this area? Do you know what used to be thrown at our 4th of July parade? Where was the original Brooks Library located? Answers win treats!  Come see exhibits of photos old & new. Share your trivial knowledge. And win treats! 

3.) Giant Games @Elliot Street 5:00-8:00pm

We’ve got some classic games super-sized! Bring your “game on” self to Elliot Street for Giant Twister, Checkers, and Bananagrams. We’ll also have Cornhole and Connect 4. Can you keep up with our game hosts on roller skates? Game on!

4.) Games from Around The World @Harmony Park

The fastest way to make friends is to play a game. Watch young kids. They don’t sit around talking to one another for long before they start teaching each other games. At this station we invite you to bring a game from your part of the world, whether it is played with sounds, hands, cards, a board, a ball or any other props. Come learn, play or teach a game and meet a new friend!

5.) XOX! Share the Love: Artful Tic-Tac-Toe @Brattleboro Museum Lawn 

Lynn Herring’s reengineered tic-tac-toe game is designed to make America relate again. Organic crooked-shaped, brightly-colored wood Xs and Os use a complex “wonky-shaped” game board. XOX! Share the Love brings people together to set aside their differences and relate playfully with each other. Lynn Herring will give an artist talk at 6 p.m. in the Museum.
