A festive weekend of art, food, fun and live entertainment takes place on August 15 and 16 as the 10th Annual ArtWalk NTC @ Liberty Station welcomes locals and visitors of all ages to Ingram Plaza
More than 175 regional and international artists will display works in almost every medium from oil paintings and sculpture to photography, jewelry, and works of glass, metal and wood.
