October 18, 2014Harrisburg Town Center!
Welcome to HarrisburgARTwalk official website. I greatly appreciate your support. Harrisburg ARTwalk is actually not funded by the town, nor Parks & Rec (although they support my efforts) The Harrisburg Town Center is not owned by the town, but by two property management companies (signs around town) that are posted. It is my efforts to bring a little culture, economic grown and ground improvements in the Town Center. Not only are the registration fees going towards an ART scholarship for a lucky senior at HIckory Ridge High School to be present in May (so far $1,000.00 - goal $5,000.00) but to improve the grass areas that we have there by building benches, walk way, gardens and sculptures with the help of our local artists and the schools' art clubs and more! So help me spread the work (I have no funds) and share our facebook page and website information all around NC! Let's be heard! For our YOUTH!
My goal is to have only artists - I'm sorry if this may offend anyone but art/culture is really my main goal - I support the types of businesses like tupperware, scentsy and etc. so please don't misunderstand, but being an artists myself, that is where my true dream and goals are. I am however going to list revenues where those type of business' can attend - there are several around our area. One in particular is the Market on Main/Town Hall.
On this website, I'm hoping to highlight all of our local artists and link you to their websites so you can support their business.
Our events have been set now to June, August, October (only winter one), and now, April. These are the months for our HarrisburgARTwalk - so mark your calendar and plan accordingly. We are hoping to have more vendors and more family friendly activities.
