About the Opportunity

serving local

Art in the Park is an art walk! An art walk is an organized, often regularly occurring event, where outdoor venues across communities host artists and displays of their work. With this new initiative, we're hoping to highlight our local artists and further creativity in our communities! 

You might be wondering how this is related to Naturally Lewis' mission; that's easy! Local creative Amanda Drake, owner of Rags and Rivers, brought the idea of an Art Walk forward to Naturally Lewis as an opportunity to partner with local artists to showcase their work with the community and visitors while also adding color and local flair to our parks. Art in the Park fits perfectly with our mission to support local businesses, encourage local placemaking initiatives, and bolster tourism in Lewis County.

Naturally Lewis looks forward to building and facilitating new connections with creatives in our community to encourage future community arts projects and programs!

Why Does This Matter?

Art brings our communities to life! We're championing the growth of a community where we all want to be - beautiful, vibrant communities are a piece of that puzzle. Additionally, art brings people to a common place, enhancing the sense of community in their neighborhood.
