The City of Fenton DDA and Arts & Culture Commission, together with Southern Lakes Parks & Recreation, announce a call to artists for the 10th annual Art Walk.

The event will be held at the Fenton Community & Cultural Center, designed by world renowned architect Eliel Saarinen, both inside and outside in Rackham Park, which surrounds the center. As the Art Walk grows, we have plans to spread to the downtown sidewalks of beautiful Fenton, MI. Fenton’s Art Walk will be scheduled annually on the last Saturday in July from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM; for Art Walk 2023, the date is July 29th.

Art Walk is a multi-media, juried art show of original works. Applications are being accepted for all art styles. Both the Jury fee AND Booth fee are due at the time of application. The deadline for applying is Friday, July 7th. Artists selected for Art Walk exhibition will be notified within three weeks of their application date and will receive additional information about the Art Walk and their booth assignments by Friday, July 14th.

The grounds of the Fenton Community & Cultural Center will be filled with art, activities for children, interactive art exhibits, music, food trucks and beverage tent.

During the Fenton Art Walk, fine art will be displayed in and around the Fenton Community & Cultural Center, and along the sidewalks of downtown Fenton, and possibly inside local businesses.
