Statesville, NC – The 2016 Downtown Statesville Fall Art Crawl is set for Friday, September 16 from 5:30–8:30 pm. The Art Crawl will showcase more than 60 artists in 38 different galleries, shops, and businesses scattered throughout the heart of Downtown Statesville. It is self-guided and you can begin the Crawl at any location. Just look for the sidewalk markers indicating a participating business. A program/map directing attendees to all the locations and listing all participating artists will be available at each location.

The Art Crawl concept is simple – come downtown and walk from location to location, enjoy music, meet the artists and enjoy their work (maybe make a purchase), browse through the shops hosting the artists, and stay late for live music, food, and drinks at one of our many restaurants and bars.Some special highlights at this Art Crawl will include the new sculpture on display at the Iredell Arts Council, titled “Rotunda.” There are also 5 new sculptures installed at the Statesville Sculpture Garden, on the corner of Water Street and Center Street. There are 9 new host locations and over 15 new artists!

The Art Crawl is a free event and offers a great time to be downtown, visit and shop local businesses, meet artists and enjoy their work. We especially would like to acknowledge our Art Crawl sponsor – Sheri Bistreich and Associates, a financial advisory practice, Ameriprise Financial for their support of this event. Parking during the Art Crawl is available on-street and in 10 public lots throughout the business district.
