Artists Wanted for Westcott Art Trail Sale
This year’s Westcott Art Trail Sale will take place on June 4 and 5, a weekend market for neighborhood artists that provides financial support for the Westcott Community Center and showcases the neighborhood.
Neighborhood artists are encouraged to participate. Contact one of the directors listed below to find a place to display your work. Set-up opportunities are also at the Westcott Community Center in the heart of the neighborhood.
This is a non-juried art sale, but there are many very talented artists in the Westcott neighborhood, so the quality of items offered for sale is very high.

The map will highlight the street location of each artist and a ledger will describe what items are for sale at that location. Street signs, posters, and flags will help locate each site.
