Art in the Square

Beautiful Utica Square is the backdrop for over 80 local artists as they showcase their work. As you stroll down the tree-lined sidewalks, you can admire the different mediums of art ranging from watercolors and stained glass to pottery, sculpture and woodturning. If you see something that inspires you, stop and chat with the artist. Each artist is on hand to answer any questions you may have. Be sure to stop by Art Alley with the kids to participate in fun art activities and pumpkin painting. This free event celebrates art and the art of shopping.
