Art will fill the streets as locals and visitors look around in search of a new, favorite piece of work.
The 39th annual Coolidge Corner Arts Festival will be held along Babcock Street in the heart of Brookline’s Coolidge Corner on Saturday, June 3, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
As one of the largest, longest-running free events in Brookline, the festival will feature work of 100 nationally recognized artists and local creators. A variety of art, such as jewelry, ceramics, glass blowing, woodwork and painting (made with modern as well as ancient methods) will be available for purchase.
“The goal is to create an event that serves both the artists and the public,” said Lea Cohen, a committee member of the Coolidge Corner Arts Festival. “It brings an incredible range of very talented craftspeople to Brookline and for many of our artists it’s their best one-day show of the year.”
This year, the festival’s Susan Lichter Jury Prize, which honors the highest level of art and craft, has been awarded to wood artist Douglas Morrison.
For the first time since the start of the festival, attendees can enjoy live music performances while dining from a selection of food trucks including Trolley Dogs, Bon Me, The Chubby Chickpea, The Dining Car, and Revelry. Wine and beer will be offered to the attendees by the Boston Hive.
