City Bulletin

Entries for April 2013


 City Hall is on the route of the Spring Art Crawl, featuring student art from Statesville High School.  The Art Crawl will be held in Downtown Statesville on Friday, April 19, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. (rain or shine)

The students’ art will be displayed in the lobby of City Hall and will include a variety of artwork.

The Art Crawl is a juried art exhibit that will showcase as many as 50 artists in 30 different shops and restaurants scattered throughout the heart of Downtown ...Statesville. It is self-guided and you can begin the Crawl at any location. Just look for the sidewalk markers indicating a participating business. A printed program guide directing attendees to all the locations and listing all participating artists will be available. 

The concept is simple – come downtown and walk from location to location, meet the artists and enjoy their work (maybe make a purchase), browse through the shops hosting the artists while enjoying refreshments and entertainment, possibly pause to refresh yourself in one of our restaurants or bars, all the while enjoying the social mingling with hundreds of others out to have a fun time.
