Art Crawl Q & A
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!
