Art Walk


When does the event take place?

Time: 11 am to 3:00 pm

Location: Throughout Bowling Green's historic downtown

Where does Art Walk take place?

This event is held throughout downtown Bowling Green's historic district. A partnership is created between downtown merchants and featured artists. Each merchant that elects to participate is partnered with a local artist or maker. Our participating merchants set space aside for our featured makers to showcase their artwork and sell their goods. The community is invited to join us in celebrating creativity through both hand made goods and lively music. 

Where should I start?

We recommend that you begin your visit by stopping at the Wood County District Public Library (251 N Main St). Here, you will have a chance to see one piece of artwork from each participating artist. Then, you can see where some of your favorite artists are located within the downtown. Our Gnome show and raffle will take place at the library as well!

Where is the student artwork located?

Crim Elementary & Bowling Green High School artwork will be located at Grounds For Thought at 174 S. Main St. (on display in the windows and inside).

All other Bowling Green student artwork is located at 192 S. Main St.

Where is the after party?

Check out the after Party at 3:30 pm at Wood County District Public Library (251 N. Main Street). Here, we will announce the Quilt raffle winner, gnome raffle winners, and the artist prizes. Light refreshments will be served and there will be live performances from the BGSU College of Musical Arts.
