Recap: Art on the Commons

Posted on August 18, 2017

aotc crowdBeautiful sunny skies and mild temps made Rosewood Arts Centre’s 29th annual Art on the Commons an ideal day for enjoying Lincoln Park Civic Commons, artwork, music, food and youth activities. Over 10,000 people came out to see us, and several hundred kids created origami boats, finger puppets and beaded jewelry, as well as enjoyed the Kaleidoscope van!

“This year’s festival was one of the best in our 29 year history!  The weather was perfect, and we heard repeatedly that the artwork was top-notch, diverse and exciting,” said Shayna McConville, Kettering’s Division Manager of Cultural Arts. “In addition, the Excursions Stage with WYSO featured local musicians and brought crowds of first-time participants to the event. Kids stayed busy with several different art activities and Bike Kettering helped park hundreds of visitor’s bikes.  It was a fantastic event all around.  The Rosewood Arts Centre team was exceptional this year, with excellent support from the Parks department, the Fraze Pavilion and the Kettering Police Department. “

This year’s group of artist vendors was an especially big hit – patrons raved about the high quality of the work. Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to our 2017 Art on the Commons artist award winners:
