ArtWalk 2018

Grand Haven ArtWalk is an annual collaboration of artists, local businesses and members of the lakeshore community in a collective celebration of art. Artists from the local area and beyond, participate in an art competition in the following categories: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture (3D) and specialty media. ArtWalk takes place Sept. 26 – Oct. 7.

There is a special hands-on art day for kids of all ages, free food and live music; 4th grade field trip to experience performance art; a youth competition for artists ranging in age from zero to18; a musical concert at the new Lynne Sherwood Waterfront Stadium; and a host of special events at the Loutit District Library.
