The 11th Annual Water Valley Art Crawl is Saturday, November 2

It’s that time of year again! Get ready for the 11th Annual Water Valley Art Crawl Saturday November 2nd 5:30–9 pm, with an after party at Hometown Pizza!

Every year artists and locals open their beautiful homes to the public for a city-wide art show. This Art Crawl is a labor of love, with all of the folks in the Water Valley community coming together to showcase what is really special about Water Valley.

The crawl will feature live music, paintings, drawings, readings, pottery, sculpture, fiber art, and more. The Art Crawl is free and fun for the whole family, with each stop providing delicious refreshments in addition to exhibiting beautiful local art. Stroll through the 15-20 stops in downtown Water Valley and take a glimpse into some of the gorgeous historic homes and businesses of the town.

Maps will be available at all participating locations, all in walking distance. This year’s date is close to Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, and there will be a memorial shrine to loved ones lost over the years and in recent times, such as Ron “Ronzo” Shapiro, who was a beloved supporter of local art.

The Art Crawl is a truly special event that combines the talent, love, and effort of this small community to share. If you would like to participate as an artist, sponsor, host, or contribute to the Dia De Los Muertos memorial in the Pocket Park, please contact Arts Council co-director Hannah McCormick at artist@hannahmccormick.com.
