Presented by The Art Museum of Greater Lafayette and the City of West Lafayette
Art on the Wabash, a regional juried art show, will return to West Lafayette’s Tapawingo Park on September 25 after a two-year absence.
The 15th Art on the Wabash will feature innovative work by accomplished regional artists. Set along the Wabash River, the fair brings together art and nature. In addition to the art, there will be food, children’s activities, and music.
Juried prizes for Best of Show, Second and Third Place, will be awarded early in the day. Visitors will receive ballots to vote for their favorite artist, and the People’s Choice Award will be announced at 3:00.
The juried fair will feature artists from Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Jasper, Hamilton, Tippecanoe, and White counties, along with a long-time participant now living in Ohio.
Free Parking will be available at the Wabash Landing Parking Garage.
Food and beverages will be available from Peoples Brewing Company, Guac Box, Fuel Coffee Shop, and Kona Ice. Live music will be performed in the pavilion by local musicians Gabrielle Elise from 10:30-11:30, Jessica Billey from 12:30-1:30, and Lauren Grace from 2:30-3:30.
A preview exhibit is now on display at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. Art on the Wabash artist’s selected works are available for viewing and purchase through mid-September. The Art Museum galleries and shop are open daily from 11 am to 4 pm.
