A fun, all-day outdoor fine art show and a wonderful opportunity to meet over 20 of Nantucket's finest artists. 

Originally founded in 1930 by artist Maud Stumm, the show has a long and colorful past as the oldest of its kind in the U.S. Historically, the Sidewalk Art Show was held in August over the period of a few days, open to professionals and amateurs alike. The Artists Association took the reins of the event in 1960s featuring works by the likes of Robert Perrin, Colonel Julian Yates and countless others. Of Yates, George Thomas recalls, "People lined up waiting for him to arrive with his canvases which were usually wet. They were snatched up immediately..." In following years, some of which were sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, the Sidewalk Art Show venues came to include locations such as Straight Wharf, the old town building, the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, and the Atheneum.
