 Arts Crawl: Lawrence-- June 26 &27 

Union Crossing and Essex Art Center are planning an Arts Crawl June 26-27 and are looking for "artistic" venues, groups, and people that are interested in participating. The Arts Crawl is an umbrella to publicize the variety of events, venues, organizations and creative activity in the city and is free to participate: we just ask that you help spread the word!

The event will take place around Island Street, and also at venues across Lawrence. You can be part of one or both days and simply need to share with us some basic information so we can help publicize your event. Below are some examples of what is being planned thus far on Island Street to help you with ideas:

  • Union Crossing is having an Open Studios Event in their studio spaces, with performances by local musicians and artists
  • Essex Art Center is having a Gallery Show, Open Studio and offering an art activity for children
  • Acting Out Theater is having a theatrical performance
  • A local dance company will be performing in the Union Crossing area
  • There will be Food Trucks on site during the event

The dates/times will be:
     Friday, June 26th 5-9pm
     Saturday, June 27th 11am - 4pm

If you are interested in participating, or have an event you would like to host that weekend, please complete the brief form here and we will follow up with you in the coming weeks. We invite folks to participate in their spaces or to set up a space in a 'pop-up' style in our area--let us know what works for you!


Many thanks,
Renée Hopkins, Union Crossing & John Budzyna, Essex Art Center
