Art Crawl

Take a look below for locations in the Halloween Art Crawl!

What is Art Crawl? During this evening, all the venues will be featuring local artists, and some will offer unique programming and entertainment! Art Crawl is for ALL ages!

What is the cost? There is no cost to participate in Art Crawl! Specific Venues may have optional offers or activities.

How do I sign up to participate? You don't need to sign up! Look at the Art Crawl map to see participating venues, then plan your evening! 

How do I get to each venue? "Crawling" from venue to venue would take too long, so we suggest carpooling with a few friends! Depending on the venue, you may be able to walk. Some will be offering complimentary wine & beverages, so you may want a designated driver. 

Why should I Art Crawl? You will be supporting local artists, galleries, and museums when you crawl! Live Local!

All participant galleries and venues will feature local artists and provide unique programming and entertainment. Each venue will include a list and map of all the stops on Art Crawl as well as a sign at their entrance to identify them as an official stop. This event was developed to promote tourism and support for local artists, and museums. Community partners include GREDF, Quincy Society of Fine Arts, The District, and Quincy Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.
