Arts Fair on the Square to feature local artists


A wide variety of painting, wood, photography and jewelry will be on display Saturday as local artists once again show off their work at the 34th annual Arts Fair on the Square.

Out of many applicants, the jury reviewed and selected the 80 best artists, both regional and national, for the fair.

The fair is presented by the Bloomington Playwrights Project and will go from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Artists exhibit original work, and many pieces will be for sale to the general public.

The Arts Fair on the Square will take place on the grounds surrounding the Monroe County Courthouse.

The Children’s Art Center will feature “Make and Take Masks” by the Lotus Education and Arts Foundation.

There will be face painting and balloon animals by Strawberri-Shortcake the Clown from the All Smiles Clown Company.

Live entertainment from local organizations such as the Bloomington Community Band, Windfall Dancers and the Jordan River Crossing will also be a part of the fair.

The fair runs in conjunction with the Taste of Bloomington on Saturday.

According to a press release, the mission of the Arts Fair on the Square is to showcase fine art and craft, connect artists with the art-buying community and promote commitment to the arts through a variety of interactive arts experiences.
