Third Thursday Art Crawl

Thursday, August 20 5:00-7:30pm

Among the magnitude of other responses, art is capable of igniting imagination. In July, we strolled a sandy beach, tossed beach balls with a lifeguard and watched a brightly colorful school of fish swim by, all without leaving the historic courthouse square. Join us again, won’t you, as we transport ourselves to the circus without really leaving home at all.

Let’s welcome the dancer on air, who will dazzle high above the downtown square. Join the spectacles beyond the center of town, as you watch props tossed and see a woman stuck in an invisible box. Wait, that’s not all we have for this circus vision, we also have a talented bubble magician.

Come one come all, to the most magically transformative downtown of all! The Main Street Office and the Burke Arts Council invite you to “step right up” and join us at “The Greatest Art Crawl on Earth!”

We currently have the following venues lined up with more to come:

  • Hamilton Williams Gallery & Studio
  • Burke Arts Council
  • City of Morganton Municipal Auditorium
  • Mountain Gallery & Gifts
  • Craft'd
  • Criativo International Arts - Booth on the Square
  • O Suzannah's Yarn featuring pop up market with other local artists - Booths on the Square
  • West Union Art Studios
  • Oak Hill Iron + Wood
