Our September 20, 2019 Art This Way Art Crawl event is an essential component of the success of the Art This Way public art installation program, and this event cannot happen without community support! The Art Crawl increases awareness of the project, educates the community, and exposes the public to the arts. The Art Crawl will be held in different downtown locations. Each location will feature a live band, an artist performing live, free appetizers, a cash bar & a gallery show. The five locations along the Art Crawl can be visited in any order, and locations are all open from 5:00pm to 9:00pm! Money raised at this event will go directly to funding public art downtown. Thank you for joining us as we help Fort Wayne further develop its unique identity!
