Destination ARTS! – Waynesboro, PA

Destination ARTS! was conceived in May 2013 as a community revitalization project based on the arts, with the ultimate goal of turning Waynesboro, PA, into an arts destination.  The initial project took seven large, vacant commercial buildings on Main Street and converted them into curated art galleries, while also filling an additional eight storefront windows with art.  The project was successfully launched on July 19, 2013 and ended 15 weeks later on October 27, having displayed over 1,600 pieces of art from more than 120 artists, including local artists and some of the most highly respected artists in the Mid-Atlantic states.  Sales exceeded $25,000.  Entirely organized by volunteers, the project brought together artists, community members, and businesses, with over 200 volunteers participating.   All but one of the seven galleries are now rented.

After our successful 15 week programs, we closed for one week and then reopened.  Currently, four galleries continue to operate downtown.  Open four days per week, the galleries have live music every Friday night, artist demonstrations and events every Saturday afternoon, and other special events (when available) on Thursdays and Sundays.  Check the schedule below for information and the AAGW website for more details.  As we approach spring and summer 2014, more activities and new arts projects will be added.  Our hope is that this will lead to an increase in vibrancy and a permanent transformation of our community into an arts and culture destination.

Please join us to celebrate Destination ARTS!
