Blood. Sweat. Tears. Design. Printing. Dreams.
Art-A-Whirl is an annual demonstration of the heart poured into a community by local creatives; creatives that believe in the power of art and design to promote social and economic growth, celebrate and reflect the community, and create connections between individuals, businesses, and artists. Through creative interpretation, problem solving, and risk taking, we are makers of dreams. Both ours and yours.
If you believe in hard work, ingenuity, authenticity, and the persistence of pursuing dreams, join us at Art-A-Whirl.
With a plethora of stories to be told, show your support for your neighbors and learn how their goods and services came to be. Support their endeavors and commission them to help support yours.
“Multiple studies have shown that each dollar spent at local, independent businesses on average generates at least three times more direct local economic benefit as a dollar spent at absentee-owned formula businesses.”
