The Bridgeport Art Trail, an annual celebration of the city’s creative community, attracted an estimated 3500 attendees during the weekend-long event.
On Thursday, November 10th 2017 over 500 mingled at the Downtown Artist’s Kickoff Party at historic Read’s Artspace. Artists, patrons and arts enthusiasts enjoyed food, drink and live music from the Park City All Stars, a line-up of local musicians, while viewing two art exhibitions.
Throughout the entire city, participants opened their doors with art exhibits, studio tours, performances, film, and live music from November 9th-12th, inviting residents and neighbors from CT/NY region to explore Bridgeport’s growing arts-scene. Some key events included a filmed Artist’s Talk at Nest Arts Factory sponsored by the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County, urban art gallery Blends, open studios at the Arcade Mall and documentary film screenings at the Bijou Theatre.
