First Arts Crawl Planned in Fishers
Writer / Pat Carlini
The first ever “Arts Crawl” will be held in the Nickel Plate District this month, showcasing the work of local artists before one of the popular AMP After Dark concerts.
The Arts Crawl will be held July 10 from 6-9 p.m. before the Jennie DeVoe concert from 9-11 p.m.
The free Arts Crawl is a collaboration between the City of Fishers, the Fishers Arts Council and the Nickel Plate District. They have paired artists with businesses for one night, so visitors can stop in different stores and restaurants and see artwork from more than two dozen local and regional artists.
Lisa Vielee of the Fishers Arts Council says the first Arts Crawl is great for business and the artists alike.
“With all the new development in Fishers, people are visiting the restaurants and boutiques and coming in for the AMP After Dark concerts, so it’s a great way to entertain our visitors as well as showcase our local businesses and artists,” says Vielee.
One of the artists featured at the Arts Crawl will be Warren Miller, a well-known Indianapolis artist who will have his artwork at the new Brixx Pizza in the heart of the downtown development.
The Nickel Plate District is the area roughly between Chatham Tap on 116th Street east to I-69.
To find your way around the Arts Crawl, an electronic map will be added to the Nickel Plate District app.
