Art in the Courtyard

The Lowell Folk Festival and The Brush Art Gallery present Art in the Courtyard on Saturday, July 30th from 12 Noon until 7:30PM and Sunday, July 31st from 12 Noon until 6:00PM. This exciting collaboration provides an opportunity for visitors to view and purchase some of the finest art and craftwork.

Art in the Courtyard is held in the shaded, brick-lined courtyard between the National Historical Park Visitor Center and the Brush Art Gallery. Tents will be set up to provide a welcoming place, rain or shine. Art in the Courtyard is a high-traffic spot during the festival. Local artists will also be displaying and selling their artwork at the neighboring Brush Art Gallery and Studios, creating a strong center for art and fine crafts for the Lowell Folk Festival.
