The WCSU artists were selected to participate in the event after submitting an application and images of their work. Those selected received a “scholarship” in the form of a free booth to exhibit and sell their creations. All the WestConn artists will be featured together in booth numbers two through five on “Warhol Way” on the festival grounds.
The Friends of the Ives nonprofit organization will host the show at Ives Concert Park on the WCSU Westside campus, 43 Lake Ave. Extension in Danbury. The two-day event will feature high-quality original works from more than 70 artists in a diverse scope of art forms representing every major category.
Food and music, along with art demonstrations and children’s events, also will be included. New this year is a wine tasting hosted by Max Wine & Spirits and an immersive exhibit of beautiful, live butterflies.
The event will take place rain or shine with gates open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Tickets are $5 for each day for the art show only; Wine tasting tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door and include admission to the art show. Children under 16 are admitted free to the art show.
