WATERBURY — The Spirit of Waterbury Committee, with a grant from the Connecticut Community Foundation, will host a weekend Art Crawl from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, September 24 and Saturday September 25 in downtown Waterbury.

Four exhibits are linked by a walking tour of Waterbury’s public art, monuments, and distinctive architecture. The event is free and open to the public.

More than 30 artists will exhibit works of art at four sites. The Silas Bronson Library on Grand Street will feature the watercolors and oils of Guilford artist Maureen Wilkinson. Post University on Bank Street will host a photography exhibit. The Mattatuck Museum will have a children’s exhibit titled, “Faces Like Ours,” in its community room and St. John’s Parish Hall will be the site of a group exhibit sponsored by the Watertown Art League.

Art books will be for sale at the John Bale Book Company on Grand Street. Art demonstrations will take place at St. John’s during show hours.

The Spirit Café and the Marriott Hotel are sponsors and will be open for lunches during the show hours. Cards will be available at each of the participating sites. Those cards will be stamped at each exhibit and when all four are visited, the Marriott Hotel will provide a free glass of wine for attendees.

For more information or to volunteer to help during the event, contact Edith Reynolds at edithreynolds@yahoo.com or text 203-232-4384.

The Art Crawl was created in partnership with Post University, the Mattatuck Museum, the Silas Bronson Library, the Arts and Culture Collaborative, the Watertown Art League, and the John Bale Book Company.
