Art Blitz –  September 21 & 22, 11 am – 5 pm, 2019

The 2018 Art Blitz was made possible with support from the Indiana Arts Commission, South Shore Arts, in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, and advertising supported by Indiana Dunes Tourism 

What is an Art Blitz?


The Art Blitz is​ modeled after the BIOblitz, an intensive period of biological surveying.

The Art Blitz​ is two days of art demonstration and exploration. Like the Bio Blitz, it relies on volunteers, artists, and visitors to facilitate and explore a period of “intensive art” in our community.

Admission for both artists and the public is FREE.

For a donation, visitors of any age can participate, take a mini class, try a new medium. Or relax, get some food, and observe artists at work. Have a picnic, take a nature walk, or sit and listen to the live entertainment.


Artists participate through demonstrating or teaching. Apply here as an artist
