Breathtaking art displays, engaging street performances and delicious food and drinks are coming to the Nickel Plate District once again. On July 15 from 6 to 9 p.m., the community is invited for the second installation of the Arts Crawl, a program the City hosts in partnership with the Nickel Plate District Business Council and the Fishers Arts Council. The free event features over 25 stops at local businesses that showcase local or regional artists and their exhibits.
“Now that we’ve created a vibrant downtown gathering place for our residents to enjoy, we’re constantly working to activate it in diverse ways,” stated Mayor Scott Fadness. “The Arts Crawl is such a unique event because it allows residents to visit the Nickel Plate District, connect with local businesses and enjoy some very diverse art exhibits.”
Maps are available at City Hall, at participating businesses and on the City’s website for those interested in planning their self-guided art tour ahead of time. Guests are also encouraged to download the Nickel Plate District mobile app to access a digital map during the event. The event is hosted in conjunction with the City’s AMP After Dark Concert series presented by Frost Brown Todd Attorneys, that takes place from 9 to 11 p.m. and features local singer/songwriter, Jennie DeVoe.
“Hosting the Arts Crawl prior to the AMP After Dark means that the community has an entire evening of free events to enjoy,” said Fishers Parks & Recreation Director, Tony Elliot. “We encourage residents to invite a few friends, arrive early and celebrate the talent we have right here in Fishers.”
