Artworks Trenton’s fifth annual Art All Day city-wide arts celebration returns to the capital city on Saturday, November 12.
The popular free event is a virtual welcome mat from Trenton-area artists who are opening the doors to studios, workshops, galleries, and pop-up spaces throughout the city.
Participation is simple: go to Artworks Trenton on Everett Alley, pick up a map and schedule of various activities, and go out on your own or take advantage of one of the walking or bike tours.
Open studios, galleries, and workshops hours are noon to 5 p.m., but a Trenton artist exhibition and open reception follows immediately at Artworks.
