As it reaches its 15th year, the Andersonville Art Walk will expand to a week-long celebration from October 10th to the 15th. The event is put on by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce and is a testament to the power of collective organizing for small businesses.
With over 70 local shops, restaurants, and businesses hosting 150 local artists, the event will include a Theatre Crawl, performances at the Andersonville Farmer’s Market, and cullinary features. The week will culminate in a public art mural reveal on the 15th.
”The expansion of Arts Week is exciting on many levels and speaks to the one-of-a-kind experience Andersonville offers,” ACC Executive Director Sara Dinges said. “Art – whether performance, design, handmade or culinary – is inherently part of the Andersonville fabric, and we cannot wait to illuminate this experience.”
Looking through the list of businesses, you can find a ton of local favorites like the new Dollop Diner, Foursided, Kopi Café, Women & Children First, and many more.
