If you find yourself in Brookline this weekend, be sure to stop by the Devotion School in Coolidge Corner for the 35th annual Coolidge Corner Arts Festival. From 10am to 6pm on Saturday, June 8, the festival will host over 75 artists from Massachusetts working in disciplines ranging from ceramics and jewelry to painting and photography and everything else in between. A quick perusal of the participating artists demonstrates the wide variety of artistic talent on display this weekend (we’re particularly fond of the abstract, sculptural jewelry crafted by Somerville artist Dev Bennett).
While the MFA and ICA are always open for business (alongside the many other wonderful art museums throughout Boston), this is a great opportunity to see some unique local talent on display. Stop by the festival for a taste of what Massachusetts has to offer. And if you’re more in the mood for a literal “taste” of Massachusetts, Brookline will also be celebrating the sixth annual Brookline Food Festival adjacent to to the CCAF, with all proceeds benefitting the Brookline Food Pantry. With the good weather finally here, there’s a lot to experience just steps from the doors of our cozy Brookline hotel.
