Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl

2024

Coming Soon!

Visit, View & Meet

35 artists from Sturgeon Bay, WI

Welcome to our Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl website! Here is a brief history of the well-loved tradition, a semi-annual event in the hub of scenic Door County, WI…

The first Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl was held in November, 2007, the brainchild of four artist friends who wanted to present their artwork for sale in the winter off-season. With only a month’s preparation, they opened their home-studio doors to the public. A small postcard mailing and a supportive community propelled the first Art Crawl to success.

The next year the artists gave themselves two months to plan and the Art Crawl doubled in size. Within a few years the size and scope of the event  expanded steadily as more Sturgeon Bay artists and galleries were invited to join.

The Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl now boasts over 30 artists displaying their work in their homes, galleries, and other venues. We create ceramics, drawings, jewelry, mixed media, paintings, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and woodworking for you to enjoy and purchase.

The artists and sites have changed over the years. In 2023 we added a Summer Art Crawl and moved our Fall Art Crawl forward to October. But the important things have stayed the same: all the artists live and exhibit within the Sturgeon Bay 54235 boundaries, we include a mission of supporting young artists, and we welcome the public into the artists’ home studios and galleries at no charge. Visitors can experience original artwork where it is made, see some of the processes, and engage in conversation with the artists.

We hope you can join us July 13 & 14, and October 26 & 27, 2024, visiting locations in any order your choose. You can learn more about us and our work here on the website and also on our Facebook page, “Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl.

Thank you for sharing our love of art!
