It’s hard to believe its been 10 years that the city has been hosting its big Boston “Ahts” Festival at the North End / Waterfront’s Christopher Columbus Park. For 2012, there were over 60 juried artist exhibitions and continuous music, theater and poetry performances using both the waterfront stage and the west garden area. The mural kids painting board is always popular and the Diablo glass blowing demonstration drew its typically large crowd. This year, the Arts Festival also launches Boston Open Studios where artists will be opening their neighborhood doors. View the full 2012 Festival Brochure (pdf).
This weekend also marks the debut of “Ripples,” a temporary public art exhibition on the lawn of Christopher Columbus Park by Carolina Aragon.
