Shopping local and supporting area artisans are the goals of the annual Downtown Marshalltown Art Walk, which will be held along Main Street on Friday, Sept. 29 from 5-7:30 p.m.

A total of 13 Central Iowa artists will showcase their works, each stationed at a different downtown business.

“It will start at the Orpheum and stretch to Black Tire Bike Company,” said Amber Danielson, who serves as the executive director of the Marshall County Arts & Culture Alliance. “The goal is to give people the opportunity to purchase art and drive traffic into our downtown businesses.”

Attendees will have the chance to shop for a variety of unique items.

“We will have photography, pastels, jewelry, fiber, mixed media and more represented,” said event co-chair Rheba Yost. “It’s a good opportunity to see what’s new for fall [in the stores] and get thinking ahead for holiday purchasing.”

The event is co-sponsored by the Marshall County Arts & Culture Alliance, the Marshalltown Central Business District, and the Marshalltown Convention & Visitors Bureau.
