The path to ArtWalk

This year's ArtWalk in Grand Haven will feature more sculptures, paintings and photography, in addition to other events designed to engage the community’s interest in art.

“We are doing this because we are passionate and we just want to see the community celebrate its art,” ArtWalk organizer Steve Loftis said.

ArtWalk 2013 takes place Sept. 18 to Oct. 5. It’s a compilation of hundreds of entries displayed in businesses and community buildings in Grand Haven’s downtown, Centertown and waterfront districts.

“It looks like we’re going to have a fairly similar number of venues and a similar number of artists as last year,” ArtWalk volunteer Randy Smith said.

During the 2012 event, there were 170 artists and about 200 works of art displayed in 80 venues.

Smith said one of the slogans that he has created to tie in with the art theme is “Keep Grand Haven Weird” — a saying he plans to put on T-shirts and other things.

“We mean that in a positive way,” Smith said. “Let people think outside of the box and be creative.”
