More than Just Art at stART on the Street - Begins Next Weekend

Worcester's largest art show will take over Park Avenue next Sunday, September 16, but there will be more to take in than just paintings and sculptures.

With a ton of local vendors, non-profits and food distributors in attendance, stART on the Street certainly appeals to more than just art lovers.

With a food court that features treats from the likes of The Flying Rhino Cafe, Nu Cafe and Bruiser BBQ, along with The Dogfather and Boston Shuckin Food Trucks, there is sure to be a dish for every taste. After lunch, guests can cool off with desserts from Coco's Tropical Ice or Like No Udder Ice Cream.

But it is, after all, an art show.

As an exhibition, stART on the Street will not disappoint either. Now in its 10th year, the festival anticipates over 250 artists expected to be in attendance. Guests can check out works from painting and sculpture, to stained glass and henna pieces. Worcester Roller Derby (WoRD) will also be there to add in their brand of smash-mouth fun.

The festival will also feature over 40 stage and and street performers from around Central Massachusetts, along with activities for the kids and interactive exhibits.

One local artist returning to stART on the Street is Worcester's Susan Champeny. A well known member of Worcester's art community, Champeny has shown at her fair share of stART on the Street Festivals, and has something special planned for this year.

The sculptor says she will unveil a tower-like sculpture that can change colors. It will be an interactive piece, as those in attendance will be able to change the tower's color.

"It's going to be pretty interesting, and people at the exhibit will be able to change the tower's color themselves," Champeny said. "They'll be able to do it with cups, of all things."

stART on the Street begins Sunday at 11 am and runs through 6 pm. There is no charge to enter the festival, but donations are always appreciated.  

EDITORS NOTE: An Email blast this morning identified the date as September 9th - this was a mistake. The event begins September 16th. Look for previews this week on GoLocalWorcester.com.
