Join the second annual METUCHEN JUNEBUG ARTSFEST.
 
Metuchen has been a mecca for artists of every discipline for more than a century. To continue and strengthen this tradition, the Junebug ArtsFest will transform Metuchen every Friday evening in June 2009 into a month-long celebration of the arts.  
 
The festival will take place during the evenings of June 5, 12, 19 and 26, from 7 to 10 pm and will feature a range of events along Main Street in downtown Metuchen, including open air exhibits, strolling musicians, interactive events for children and adults and open-mike sessions featuring poets and performers at the Coffee Shops and Bookstore. In addition, a walking and/or bus tour of Artists' Studios in different Metuchen neighborhoods will be available. 
 
This annual event will succeed with the help of your imaginative input and willingness to participate.  Ideally, this event will be benefit you - the local artist - by helping you progress as a professional and give you a chance to showcase your work to a larger audience.

What, no comments from the illustrator or printmaker lobby?

Thanks, we've updated the list to include photographers.

Please keep in mind that this event is open to visual artists in all media. This includes photography in addition to the list in the announcement. I had work in the show last year and loved it.

Last year's June Bug was great. Kids loved the art projects at Boro Hall.
