ArtWalk Artists, Entertainers Hit Elkhart Downtown Today

May 15, 2013

Mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70s will greet participants at today’s ArtWalk in downtown Elkhart.

The event, sponsored by Downtown Elkhart Inc., features 21 artists and nine musical entertainers line up along South Main Street in the downtown business district. The art festival runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

In conjunction with ArtWalk, Lerner Theatre will host the SoMa Expo during the event. The expo will highlight long-term plans for the downtown revitalization group.

At 8 p.m., the theater will host a movie documenting a jazz competition involving Wynton Marsalis, who is scheduled to participate in next month’s Elkhart Jazz Fest.

Numerous downtown stores are featuring special promotions as part of ArtWalk and a community art project is planned at the Civic Plaza.

This year marks the third year for ArtWalk.
