If you're looking for something to do this weekend, go support a fellow RAW Dawg: Northeastern student Daniel Brim, a RAW regular whose photo of the waterfall Dettifoss in Iceland captured First Place in our July "Ripples" contest, will be showing his photographs at The Boston Arts Festival (also known as the Boston Ahts Festival) this weekend at Columbus Park on the North End waterfront.

This is just the festival's 7th year, but I can attest that it's a blast; so many great exhibits, live performances, workshops, and art demonstrations. Plenty for kids do to, too.

It ran for just one afternoon its first year in 2003; it has grown so much that now it's held for three full days, Friday through Sunday, and also serves as the kickoff for the city's Open Studios weekends, which start Sept. 19 and 20 in the South End and run through Dec. 5 and 6 in Hyde Park.

This year's festival opens at noon Friday (Sept. 12) and ends at 6 p.m. Sunday (the 14th). Exhibits by visual artists like Daniel will be on display from noon to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday; the live performances, from dance to poetry to theater to rock music, will be held 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. Friday, 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and 12:30 to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Columbus Park is next to the Marriott Long Wharf. There's plenty of parking in the area at commercial garages, such as at the Aquarium, or on Commercial Wharf, Lewis Wharf, and Rowes Wharf. Can't guarantee it's cheap, though. As for public transportation, the nearby Aquarium stop is on the Blue Line. Here's more about parking and directions.

Daniel's photos and the work of the artists who are exhibiting was juried into the show; they have to pay a fee to set up their wares, but the arts office doesn't take a commission on sales. Here's the list of photographers who will be exhibiting, and you can see more of Daniel's photos on his Flickr account.

If you go, take some photos and I'll post them here.


Do you have a show or exhibit coming up? Send the details and any links to and I'll post it here.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....

Photography apps for your phone
