Residents are invited to participate in a community art project and open mic event at Celebrate Art!, part of the Town’s “Second Saturday” series this summer.

The Second Saturday series runs through September and will be hosted jointly by the Human Services, Library, and Recreation Departments.

July 10 the Friends of the Woodbridge Library will hold a mini book sale from 9-11 am; on August 14 the Town will host “Celebrate Art!” a community art event from 10-12 and on Saturday September 11 there will be a makers’ market and craft fair from 10-1. Interested vendors must fill out a form on the Town website. Questions may be directed to Jennifer Sullivan, Head of Adult Services at the Woodbridge Town Library (jsullivan@woodbridgetownlibrary.org) or Betsy Yagla, Assistant Administrative Officer (byagla@woodbridgect.org). A community tag sale was held in June and a chalk art party was in May.

“These free, family friendly events are such an important opportunity to bring our residents together as we emerge from the pandemic,” said First Selectman Beth Heller. The events are part of the First Selectman’s Town Center Beautification Plan to make the Town Center Campus a more active and attractive place.

Celebrate Art! will showcase local artists from the Woodbridge Arts Guild, an arts and craft supply swap (materials with life left in them may be dropped off at the Library now through Aug. 6 or brought to the event), plein air painting, an open mic event (sign up early here!) and a community art project. As with all Second Saturday events there will be lawn games and food trucks available.  

The community art project will form a positive message on the fence surrounding the Woodbridge Town Library’s air conditioning unit. The letters will be created from decorated index cards. Residents are asked to depict something on the card that they love about Woodbridge.

Residents may begin participating in July in the Town’s community art project by picking up an index card to decorate. Cards can be picked up and returned to the Woodbridge Town Library, the Woodbridge Center or Town Hall. They will also be availalbe during events, including Celebrate Art! Cards will be laminated and added to the fence at the event.

For additional information contact Betsy Yagla (byagla@woodbridgect.org).
