What have visitors said about Art.Downtown.? Get excited about:
" The trolley. The Art. The people. Downtown alive!"
"The local artist focus and the synergy of multiple institutions, galleries and artists showing at the same time."
"The participation of several facilities. It was nice to view not just different artist's work, but to also get a completely different feel in the environment and space that it was shown. The energy was very good with all the people out and about, it successfully got people outside and doing something new and different."
"Honestly, pretty much everything."
