Art Walks resume in Port Clinton

PORT CLINTON – Artwork by northwest Ohio artists is to be featured 5-8 p.m. every fourth Thursday in Port Clinton. The free family-friendly downtown art celebration features artists, live music and galleries, restaurants and other businesses taking part each month.

The series begins May 22.

In 2013, the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council, Historic Downtown Port Clinton, art galleries and venues united to form Art Walk as a means of promoting art and downtown businesses.

New this year, Lake Erie Adventure Play will offer an opportunity for kids and families to express themselves through creative play at each Art Walk through September.

“Art Walk brought a lot of excitement to downtown last year and we’re expecting more of the same in 2014,” said Jen Nickel, artist and chairwoman of the GPCAAC outreach committee.

Artists who wish to participate and downtown businesses that would like artists inside

or in front of their venues should call Nickel at (419) 341-0804.
