2014 Fall Art Crawl in Zachary, La.


Wanting some new fantastic, local artwork to decorate the house with? Well, get excited because the 3rd annual Fall Art Crawl, presented by the Regional Arts Council of Zachary (RACZ) is Friday, September 26, 2014 from 6-10 p.m. in downtown Zachary, La.



This event is very unique to Zachary and the surrounding Baton Rouge areas because it allows local artists to showcase their work to the public in a fun and friendly way. More than 35 artists are participating in the crawl along with large and small collections that will be available for purchase. Businesses in downtown Zachary open their doors to the public and allow the artists to showcase their works in and outside of their location.
