The Boulder Festival of the Arts at Twenty Ninth Street is back for its third year this Saturday and Sunday. Join 150 artists from around the corner and across the nation as they transform Twenty Ninth Street into an outdoor gallery. Admission and parking are free.

The festival is designed to make art accessible to everyone, from casual admirers to serious art buyers to those who are just looking for something fun to do this weekend. The artistic media represented include paintings, life-size sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage and ceramics. Prices of the works on display will run from $25 for hand-designed earrings to $20,000 for metal sculptures.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for festival goers to discover new talent and original works of art while supporting the arts and the local community,” explains Howard Alan, festival promoter.

The Humane Society’s Pet Care Cruiser will also be on site with cats and dogs in need of loving homes. Stop by to meet your new best furry friend, learn more about the Humane Society’s programs and services, and make a donation to further its worthy goals.
