Art doesn’t have to stay on a gallery wall.

Art Fridays at Downtown Crossing takes it outside, is a juried show where it art is hung and sold directly from artist to buyer.

Every Friday through October 1, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., artists fill Summer Street with works of art, including paintings, handcrafted clay, blown glass, stained glass, wood, furniture, photography, wearable art, kid’s clothing, metal, handcrafted toys, and jewelry; locally produced food is also available. The weekly event is sponsored by the Boston Redevelopment Authority and the Downtown Crossing Partnership.

Musicians play from noon to 2 p.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. Today, June 4, local outdoor performer Ken Freeman takes the stage at noon, and rock and classical violinist Clara Kebabian plays at 4.
