On the annual event of Earth day, the small community of Bynum, held its second annual “Bridge Fest and Studio Tour” sponsored by the organization bePhilARThropy. This small area of just a few hundred people in central North Carolina hosted the festivities which featured more than 30 artists, several food vendors, an acclaimed storyteller and even a high school arts showcase. Visitors could also take a walking tour to visit the studios of 5 local artists.
A portion of the proceeds from artist booth rentals and other sources went to the Arbor Day Fountain for planting trees in parts of the state hit by wildfires.
Here are some scenes from the festival.
By the way, did I mention that my brother and sister in law started bePhilARThropy and essentially put this whole thing together with some help of friends?
