Join our 4th Annual RUMPUS 2016, an egalitarian art show! Anyone can participate, professional artist or not, young or old. RUMPUS 2016 will open from 5-7pm on Saturday, February 13 at Engine, 128 Main Street and run through 4pm on Saturday, March 19.

Engine executive director Tammy Ackerman says, “RUMPUS has been a great success the first two years with a ton of participation. It’s one of my favorite shows because you never know what is going to show up at your door and it’s great to see professional artists alongside aspiring artists, and kids.” The first RUMPUS was held in 2013.
