Art on The Bricks
Sign Up for the Art House Newsletter
Fulton’s Historic Brick District will experience its annual autumn celebration with “Art on the Bricks” September 21—22.
Note our new name! We changed the name of the festival from “Autumn on the Bricks” to “Art on the Bricks” to better reflect the event’s focus on art, which includes fine art, fine craft, musical performances and local artisanal food, produce and libations. There will still be plenty of autumn ambience to experience in our scenic downtown venue.
The weekend starts off with an opening reception for Art House’s Autumn Exhibit. The reception will be from 5:00—7:00pm at the Art House.
Immediately following, the Brick District Playhouse will host a concert. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the progress of the historic theater’s renovation and enjoy a wonderful evening of entertainment.
On Saturday, from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Court Street between 5th and 6th Streets will be alive with activity as the local community and visitors celebrate Art on the Bricks. In addition to an expanded Farmers Market and pumpkin patch, there will be booths featuring original works of fine art, antiques, quilts, art demonstrations by Best of Missouri Hands artists, craft beers, local wines and distilled spirits. Live music will fill the streets throughout the day. Bring the kids and enjoy the festivities! Admittance to the festival is free; however a commemorative tasting glass for beverages will be available for purchase. The food tent and trucks will open for lunch.
“Art on the Bricks is the winning combination of art, music, local cuisine and a beautiful autumn day. Art House volunteers have been working overtime recruiting regional artists and artisans, as well as local specialty crop producers to make this year’s Art on the Bricks the best ever. I love that my community is filled with people who are passionate about what they create and believe in and have fun in the process. It is events like this one that make me proud to be a part of this unique area,” states Jane Mudd, Art House Director and local artist.
See you on the Bricks!
