WAC to Host Pop Up Art Show, April 6

Westport, CT -- Pop into a special Spring Pop Up show by the Westport Artists Collective on Thursday, April 6 from 6 – 8 p.m at the Westport Arts Center. The Pop Up is free and open to the public, and will be on view Thursday, April 6 through Saturday, April 8 (closing at 1 p.m. Saturday).

For this special Spring Pop Up show, all 150 members of the Collective were invited to showcase a work of art, creating an extraordinary display of artistic talent, with works ranging from mixed media to sculpture to paintings.

The Westport Artists Collective Pop Up shows are a reflection of Westport’s creative heritage and are wildly popular events.  The Arts Center gives over its space to the Collective three times each year, allowing local and regional professional artists to showcase their work, and the entire community to show its support.

Amanda Innes, Executive Director of the Arts Center, stated, “The Westport Arts Center is thrilled to provide a home base for the diverse range of artists that make up the Collective. The Pop Up shows help to facilitate a connection between local artists and the community.”

The Westport Arts Center Collective has quickly grown to include 150 members who have joined forces to discuss, create, and develop dynamic art experiences.  For more information on the Pop Up Show or the Westport Artists Collective, contact the Westport Arts Center at 203/222-7070 or visit the Arts Center website at www.westportartscenter.org.
