Artink’s Gallery Crawl Recap

Tonight is Artlink’s first ever Pop Up Gallery Crawl through downtown Fort Wayne where vacate businesses will become art galleries for one night only! Come and join us from 6 to 9 pm to experience local food, musician, and original artwork available for purchase. There will also be a cash bar at each location. The walking tour will showcase a variety of 2D and 3D creations by artists born and raised right here in our small, but thriving art scene.

For anyone who has been tuning into Living Fort Wayne’s Gallery Crawl series the last couple of weeks, some of the artists and locations have changed. But below includes the finalized list of all the artists, vendors, and where they will be located on the walking tour.
