ArtWalk

Spring ArtWalk is back in Downtown and online!

Friday, May 7 • 5 – 9 p.m.

ArtWalk, a favorite event in Findlay, is an event taking place twice a year – the first Fridays in May and November.  This is a free event that is open to the whole family. 

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, ArtWalk will take place both in-person as well as online!  Artists will be located in Downtown Findlay in large, open spaces where social distancing can take place.  Findlay Art League will be hosting the opening reception for their May show, Marathon Center for the Performing Arts will be unveiling their Wall of Fame recipient, and Jones Building Artists Studios will be open.  Online, local musicians will be streaming their sets, artists’ work will be showcased, and more!

Home artists of all ages who would like to showcase their work may photos or scans of their pieces, the name of the piece, and any additional information to info@visitfindlay.com.  Students are encouraged to include their school name and age/grade.
