The Battle Creek Area Chamber Foundation is currently seeking artists and businesses interested in participating in its bi-annual artwalk, Spring into the Arts. Spring into the Arts provides businesses, artists, and art organizations the opportunity to create meaningful partnerships that support a healthy, creative and artistic community. Located along the Linear Path alongside the Battle Creek River, the artwalk introduces new ways for both artists and businesses to gain a competitive advantage showcasing all that our community has to offer.
This year’s Spring into the Arts will host artists, businesses and organizations along the Linear Path Downtown on the Battle Creek River. The location will span from the Underground Railroad monument park (located near the Kellogg House) to Carlyle Street. With the change in location, we are asking that those who participate provide a tent for their space. No locations will be assigned, all areas will be on a first come, first served basis. There will be some access to electricity, but that cannot be guaranteed.
Again this year is the popular “People’s Choice” voting, where the public can vote for their favorite work of art! This is a fun way that we can engage the community with our Artists and help create excitement around the creativity that lives within our community.
Winners of the People’s Choice Award will be announced at the June 9th, 2020 Battle Creek Area Chamber of Commerce Eye Opener Breakfast & Business Expo at the Kool Family Community Center starting at 7:30 a.m. The first place artist will receive a cash reward of $1,000 and second place will receive $500 cash reward. The top two artists will be contacted and invited to join in on this celebration. All are welcome to attend and should RSVP to Kara Beer at [email protected] or call 269.962.4076.
With the event being held outside this year, we have elected to host a rain date in case of inclimate weather. The rain date that has been selected is May 22, 2020 from 3-9 p.m. This rain date would be called by 10 a.m. on May 15, 2020 and all participants and the community would be notified by social media outlets and email blast.
