The spring ART WALK in downtown Springdale kicks off this Thursday, April 25 through Saturday, April 27. Attendees can expect immersive art experiences, guided tours of the ART WALK and incredible art from regional and local artists for purchase.

 

Galleries, museums, makers’ spaces and businesses in the area will host the artists and open their doors for a variety of unique experiences and entertainment. Many of the ART WALK stops are within the Outdoor Dining District, making it easy for event-goers to enjoy food and drink while admiring the art.

 

“This is our fourth ART WALK season, and we are blown away by the caliber of artists featured in this Spring’s ART WALK,” said Jill Dabbs, Executive Director of the Downtown Springdale Alliance. “We have more than 20 businesses hosting artists, and we have some incredible featured artists, including Mad Alchemy, Rumwolf, Sarah Turner and the Snake Channeler who will perform throughout downtown. And we’re bringing back the Art Wine Crawl which was a huge hit last year. This one is not to be missed!”
