MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Arts Walk opens for its sixth season Friday with artists showcasing their visual and performing talents at more than 25 locations throughout town.
The free event is held from 5 to 7 p.m. on the second Friday of the month, May through October. In many cases, the art is on display all month long.
Sue Hoxie of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce said the event came out of the Creative Economy meetings several years ago.
“It brings people downtown. The stores stay open so there’s extra shopping that goes on,” Hoxie said. “Its purpose is for everybody to see art but also to generate revenue through people shopping, dining, that sort of thing.”
She said there are new artists who participate each month with about 30 venues, though not all venues take part every month.
“It’s a changing number of venues and then the art is always fresh in every venue,” she said.
Visitors are reminded to look for the “pink boot” and find the surprise SunCommon Pop-up Gallery.
