WATERBURY – The Spirit of Waterbury Committee, with a grant from the Connecticut Community Foundation, will host an Art Crawl weekend from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday September 24 and Saturday September 25 in downtown Waterbury.
Four exhibits are linked by a walking tour of Waterbury’s public art, landmarks and distinctive architecture. The event is free and open to the public.
More than 30 artists will exhibit works of art at four venues. The Silas Bronson Library on Grand Street will feature watercolors and oils by artist Guilford Maureen Wilkinson. Post University on Bank Street will host a photography exhibition. The Mattatuck Museum will present a children’s exhibit titled “Faces Like Ours” in its community hall and the St. John’s Parish Hall will be the site of a group exhibit sponsored by the Watertown Art League.
Art books will be on sale at the John Bale Book Company on Grand Street. Art demonstrations will be held in St. John’s during opening hours.
The Spirit Café and the Marriott Hotel are sponsors and will be open for lunch during show hours. Maps will be available at each of the participating sites. These cards will be stamped at each exhibit and when all four are visited, the Marriott Hotel will offer attendees a complimentary glass of wine.
