38 artists explore past, present and future of Beacon
Each August, Windows on Main Street engages Beacon residents and visitors through a month-long display of art along Main Street. It is a celebration of Beacon’s uniqueness, rich history and recent revitalization. This year’s Windows on Main Street event opens Aug. 10 and runs through Sept. 14. It’s free to the public, open 24/7 along the length of Main Street. An opening reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, at Dream in Plastic, 177 Main St., Beacon.
This collaborative and multidisciplinary project is intended to stimulate interaction between artists, residents and businesses to explore how art can provide cultural and social understanding and be a catalyst for economic improvement in communities.
Additionally, Tiny Windows, a free and open mini exhibition of the artists of Windows on Main Street, will be on display at Dream in Plastic throughout the month.
This year, 38 artists will participate in the event. For the full list of artists and locations where they will show their work, see beaconwindows.org.
