Block of Art
- The Block of Art began in 2007 as a grass roots effort to bring an arts event to downtown Pottsville, a historic town in eastern Pennsylvania, about two hours northwest of Philadelphia.
- In the first year the Block of Art brought together artists, businesses and the county library on a single block to welcome the people of Schuylkill County to experience art and culture over three days in April. The event has grown each year since. The original audience of 300 people viewed 75 pieces of art from 30 artists in 3 venues. In 2015, the Block of Art had 800 guests from 60 artists 6 galleries and many current events.
- In 2016 we celebrated our 10th Block of Art with a major reception and swing dance at the Ramada. The weekend featured galleries, an art auction, artists making and selling art, folk art, music, poetry, and much, much more.
