Cuyahoga Falls City Schools, in partnership with Cuyahoga Falls city leadership, local businesses and the Cuyahoga Falls Library, announce the third annual Cuyahoga Falls All City Art Walk April 20 from 5-8 p.m. As you stroll through town, choosing any of the six locations as a starting point, you will find artworks on display by Cuyahoga Falls artists in kindergarten through 12th grade. Due to support of community leaders, businesses and organizations, this event is free.
Display locations include The Pavilion on the Riverfront, the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center, the Cuyahoga Falls Library, Harps & Thistles Yarn Emporium, Urban Lace and City Hall. Attendees can pick up a map at any of these locations and begin the walking journey through the local world of art.
This year’s theme – Art Rocks – will feature chairs created by art students at each of the schools and local artists that will be raffled off during the event. In addition to the incredible art displays, there will be make-and-take art activities, food, live music, artist demonstrations, fun photo opportunities, a debut of the City Hall mural, live poetry, a scavenger hunt and more.
