您知道罗德岛的艺术家人数排名全国第一吗?威克福德镇每年七月所举办的节庆,旨在颂扬这件事。始于1962年的威克福德镇艺术节,其重要性及规模与日俱增。 时至今日,每一年,世界各地的艺术家都彼此较劲,希望能争取到展览会场上的有限场地来展示他们作品;另外,展览会也保留了一部分的场地给当地的艺术家。


Did you know that Rhode Island has more artists per person than any state in the country? The town of Wickford celebrates this fact by holding an arts festival every July. Started in 1962, the Wickford Arts Festival has grown in size and importance. Today, artists from around the world compete for the few spaces that become available each year to exhibit their wares. A percentage of the space is reserved for local artists.

About 95,000 people attend the two-day festival, which is devoted to fine art, photography, and three-dimensional art. The Wickford Arts Festival is a "juried" show; that is, if you want to exhibit your art in the festival, you must submit a sample of your work to be judged. The judges consider originality, workmanship and presentation when making their choices on who is allowed to exhibit in the show. What's your favorite type of art?
