  • "Painted Doors of Branford 2022"

  • Saturday, September 17th from 10 AM to 5 PM

    What is it? An open-air exhibit and competition featuring standard household doors painted or decorated in a way that suits the artist creating the artwork. The “door art” will be on display in front of businesses along Main St. for viewing and for sale to the public.

    The Painted Doors event in 2020 was a great success drawing hundreds of people to Branford Center for BACA’s fundraising scholarship. This year’s event will help support operating costs of the BACA Gallery on Main Street.

    For more information view the Artist Instructions. Interested participants should download and print the event registration form.
