The Westport Downtown Merchants Association is accepting entries for its month-long "Art About Town" exhibit to be held this spring in the windows of shops and restaurants throughout Westport's downtown shopping district.
Jurors for the exhibit taking place May 24 to June 17 will consider any media, including sculpture, and all works must be available for purchase, according to a news release from the association. Submissions must be original works of art; no crafts will be accepted.
Shops and restaurants have donated window and floor space to artists for the entire month and will stay open late for an opening night street festival Thursday, May 24. That night, Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic to create an open gallery for viewing art work during the event, which will include art, music, entertainment and refreshments.
