First Ever Greensburg ArtsWalk is this Saturday

With the abundance of art and culture in in Greensburg, the first ever Greensburg ArtsWalk is sure to be a great success. From live chalk drawing from Erik Greenawalt at the Museum Loading Dock from 11-5 to live music at the Museum, DV8 Espresso Bar and Gallery, City Hall and in the Art in the Alley, to plenty of art and happenings throughout downtown Greensburg, it will be a busy art filled day!

The Greensburg ArtsWalk is a self-guided event showcasing local, regional and national artists at each stop, including the Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s Incubator for the Arts, Seton Hill University’s galleries and Art Yard, DV8 Espresso Bar and Gallery and more! You will be able to stroll through downtown Greensburg at your own pace, meet some of the artists and discover multiple art ‘happenings’ all day.

Art Happens is an interactive public art project developed by The Westmoreland Museum of American Art and located in Greensburg’s central business district. In partnership with the Greensburg Community Development Corporation (GCDC) and the City of Greensburg, this community project will place select details of the Museum’s collection directly into the city where people live, work, and play.

Make sure to use #GbgArtsWalk on all of your social media posts throughout the day!
