The Banbury Art Crawl has become a ‘jewel of an event’, celebrating a diverse culture of arts and business in our community.
When the Eau Claire Uniroyal Factory closed in 1992, it was a sad time for workers and the community. Entrepreneurs, Bill Cigan and Jack Kaiser bought the factory and rented space to a diverse community of businesses, artists and residents. Stained glass resident artist, Laurie Bieze wanted to share the exciting and dynamic things going on in Building 13. Several artists ‘threw together’ the first-ever Art Crawl, where local artists could exhibit, sell and demonstrate their work. Over the years, it has attracted thousands of visitors to this free, fun and creative mid-winter event.
At this year's 7th annual event, over 60 artists and vendors will sell their work: food, music, painting, woodworking, weaving, pottery, sculpture, stained glass, jewelry, mixed media, photography, and fabric art.
The Crawl has become a fixture in Eau Claire - and a great, event bringing our community together!
