We are excited for the return of Rumpus! This egalitarian art show, curated by Hydra Collective, welcomes submissions from artists of all ages and all experiences working in a range of media. Work submitted will not be censored, however, we reserve the right to omit work that may promote hate speech or egregious violence.

Biddeford ArtWalk

Don’t forget to enjoy the June Biddeford ArtWalk between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m. Friday, June 16 – rain or shine!

ArtWalks are the intersection of our contemporary art scene, historic downtown, and the natural world. In addition to businesses on Main, Washington, and Alfred streets, as well as Pepperell Mill Campus, show work of local artists, we’ve added Makers Block! We’re shutting down Washington Street to vehicular traffic to create a block party of makers, music, and maybe even some games! It’s a different experience every month!

Gratitude to Hydra for organizing Rumpus, as well our friends at the City of Biddeford, Heart of Biddeford, Drift & Wander Boutique, and Common Roots Studio who help power this free community event.
