2008 Living History and Art Show
Sunday, April 27, 2008

Part 1 of 4

This year, an Art Show & Sale was added to all the activities of previous Living History Days, making this a day of all-time record attendance at Bridgeport.   More than 50 artists displayed their works in booths in and near the fenced yard surrounding the Historic Barn.  Opening this area to the celebration provided plenty of room for the added attendance, so the event was festive but not crowded. The photos that follow focus more on the Art Show because Living History photos from 2007 are available.

The photos are given in four parts (Web pages) as follows.  A few items (mainly artists) on each page are listed for those looking for specific things or are coming back to see items again.  I apologize for not being able to photograph all the artists and representative work.
