When it comes to finding a neighborhood in town that has a great beat to it, especially when it comes to culture and the arts, Lawrenceville reigns supreme.  With its endless array of shopping, restaurants, art galleries and more, this is an area that shouldn’t go unnoticed.

For the art and culture lovers in your life, why not treat them to an afternoon of splendor with the Lawrenceville Art Crawl. Produced by Redfishbowl, this event is designed to generate a buzz amongst the community surrounding Lawrenceville, bringing together local artists, musicians, performers, as well as introducing small businesses to those unfamiliar.

From the founders of the event, the inspiration of the Lawrenceville Art Crawl is “to unify the creative community through the common thread of art and music. We strive to create a platform for any artist of any medium to further their career, gain exposure, opportunity, and connect with the artistic community.”

Starting from 38th Street, all the way up to 54th Street (all along Butler St.), guests will be treated to a variety of street performances, artists, as well as local venues from bars, restaurants and shops that will be participating in the Art Crawl.

And don’t take this event lightly, more than 150 visual artists will be on showcase, along with over 35 performances and lets not forget about the food – with over 25 restaurants and food trucks on tap for those in attendance (who doesn’t love a good food truck, they are all the rage).

We love a great excuse to go shopping, especially when it is to help out a community so rich and diverse in art and culture as Lawrenceville.
