Community Art Fair announces second year


Celebrating community arts was a regular occurrence in Bloomington this summer.

But to transition into fall, the second annual Bloomington Community Art Fair will bring local artists together for a special Labor Day weekend event.

The Bloomington Community Art Fair will take place 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 31 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 1 at the Third Street Park and will showcase a variety of creative media produced by area artists.

Last year’s festival included artwork ranging from letterpress prints and blown glass to homemade fragrances and stained glass, among others.

The art fair will partner again this year with Garlic Fest to supply locally produced garlic-based foods and various genres of musical entertainment from local bands.

Live music will begin Aug. 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. in addition to performances during the two art fair days.
