Follow the scenic Ohio River into Switzerland County and you will find a quaint river valley teeming with talented artists. Once a year these artists from all walks gather together to celebrate their art. A collection of mediums included on the tour are sculpture, paint, glass, fiber, steel, wood, photography, and artful reuse. You will have to see for yourself just how unique these artists are.
Artists will be set up in home studios throughout the county, pop-up locations in town, inside the Art Center, and outside on the patio if the Indiana weather allows! A great deal of the action will be located in town around the Community Art Center, which is conveniently located on the corner of Main and Ferry streets – and close to several great restaurants. Enjoy live performances from local musicians to add to the festivities.
The tour takes place Saturday May 6th from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday May 7th from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.. Make it a weekend getaway and stay at one of Switzerland County’s many different choices for lodging. If your love of art bubbles over to an appreciation for unique architecture, take a walk around town to view our many significant historic buildings on the self guided Historic Walking Tour. There is plenty to do in and around the area for people of all ages!
