Hear live music at more than a dozen venues, shop for local art, meet the artists, see a glass-blowing demonstration and even learn to salsa during the fourth annual Fishers Arts Crawl from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 13 in the Nickel Plate District. More than 40 local and regional artisans will be featured during this self-guided crawl through downtown Fishers where you can shop at local boutiques, sample wine at The Wine Guy and grab a cold beverage from Sun King at Flats at Switch and listen to jazz guitarist Steve Newby will be playing. Just steps away on the Central Green, hangout with the blues band, Highway 9. There's something for everyone. Children's book author Rachel SunRai Sims of Fishers and Indy poet Lylanne Musselman will do readings every 15 minutes beginning at 6:15 p.m. inside Vandagard along 116th Street, and you can purchase a signed copy of books in front of Roman & Leo next door. Every 30 minutes, beginning at 6:15, take a salsa class at Source Yoga. Curious about the new mural on the side of Handel's? Stop by to meet artist Craig Martin who created it. Love the painted electrical boxes that dot the downtown landscape? Artist Jen Byler can tell you about the box she painted this summer outside of The Edge. Be on the look out for the Fishers High School drum and a roving magician that has lots of tricks up his sleeve. It's a lot to take in over three hours, so if you need a lift, hop aboard a free shuttle that will take you from the Central Green to Wine Guy on the western edge of the crawl and Blue Peppermint on the eastern edge. Or, pedal the Pint Cycle (for free during the Crawl) to get from City Hall (you'll find a new Art in City Hall exhibit) to Meyer Najem where Sharon Brooks will have an exhibit inside, and pop duo Graham Case. Pint Cycle also will head to Four Day Ray, where you can catch The Rays and contemporary artist Ben Jennings. Arts Crawl is hosted by the City of Fishers and Fishers Arts Council with support from Nickel Plate Arts.
