With what has become now three keystone organizations of the Art Walk, it seemed fitting to develop an Arts District on the second block of South Main Street, now referred to as Art Block. Art Block maintains the third Friday evening of gallery openings but the important difference is a holistic experience of the arts outside of the gallery as a way to counter-act ‘silo-ed events’ occurring on the same night.
Art Block is the creative location of Wilkes-Barre where you not only view art, you experience art. While patrons can take in the work of artists of regional, national, and international acclaim at any one of the Art Block locations, they might also participate in creating the art work themselves. Visitors can contribute to a community mural, an art installation, witness a performance piece, or watch a live art demonstration.
