Spring is in the air and we are ready to celebrate by bringing you the 2019 Spring into the Arts, Artwalk! This year, we are breathing new life into the bi-annual event by relocating to the beautiful Linear Path Downtown, along the Battle Creek River. We will be introducing new ways to enjoy all that the community has to offer, as well as keeping with some old traditions, and we are excited to share the details!
This year’s Spring into the Arts will host artists, businesses and organizations along the Linear Path Downtown on the Battle Creek River. The location will span from the Underground Railroad monument park (located near the Kellogg House) to Carlyle Street. With the change in location, we are asking that those who participate provide a tent for their space. No locations will be assigned, all areas will be on a first come, first served basis. There will be some access to electricity, but that cannot be guaranteed.
The New Additions
Again this year is the popular “People’s Choice” voting, where the public can vote for their favorite work of art! This is a fun way that we can engage the community with our Artists and help create excitement around the creativity that lives within our community.
Winners of the People’s Choice Award will be announced at the Battle Creek Area Chamber of Commerce Eye Opener Breakfast & Business Expo, Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at the Kool Family Community Center starting at 7:30 a.m. The first place artist will receive a cash reward of $2,000 and second place will receive $1,000 cash reward. The top two artists will be contacted and invited to join in on this celebration. All are welcome to attend and should RSVP to Kara Beer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 269.962.4076
With the event being held outside this year, we have elected to host a rain date in case of inclimate weather. The rain date that has been selected is May 31, 2019 from 3-9 p.m. This rain date would be called by 10 a.m. on May 24, 2019 and all participants and the community would be notified by social media outlets and email blast.
