Downtown Bristol will be alive with the arts for a special State of the Arts Weekend coordinated by the Believe in Bristol Arts & Entertainment District Steering Committee!

State of the Arts Weekend is on June 17-19, and onSaturday, June 18, 12:00-1:00 PM, we are having an Artist Power Hour art competition at the Bristol Public Library outdoor plaza in Historic Downtown Bristol. Artists will have one hour to start and finish their art project in front of an audience of voters. Artists should bring their own supplies, table or easel, along with a tip jar. The artist with the most votes at the end of the hour is the winner! The winning artist will be featured on the A&E section of the Believe in Bristol website as well as the A&E District Facebook page, and also be displayed in one of the galleries in Downtown Bristol for one month. This competition is open to all varieties of artisans: painters, sculptors, jewelry makers, crafters, collage enthusiasts, woodcarvers — we want you all!
