About the North Shore Art Crawl

The North Shore Art Crawl is a free community arts event that celebrates the creative energy of our local artists and enables cultural vitality. The objective is to feature artists in approachable and accessible art venues that encourage the community to connect and celebrate expression and diversity. We engage, inspire, and transform the North Shore through inclusive alliances among artists and the community.

Arts in the Garden 2022

Saturday, May 28th & Sunday, May 29th, 2022
Arts in the Garden is a self-guided tour of twelve North Shore garden spaces taking place – rain or shine!- on Saturday & Sunday, May 28 & 29, 2022 from 12:00-5:00pm.

Twelve private and public garden spaces will feature musicians providing live music, an array of natural landscapes, and visual artists leading engaging art activities. Visitors are invited to wander through the garden spaces, immersing themselves in nature, enjoying music ranging from jazz to indie-folk, and admiring visual art ranging from paintings to jewelry. There are five special performances scheduled throughout the long weekend, including dance, movement art, and poetry. Arts in the Garden is a celebration of creativity that encourages visitors to explore, be curious, and have fun, while reflecting on their relationship to nature and to the land we’re on.

We have included notes regarding accessibility in our brochure and on each Garden Page.

“Partially Accessible” refers to gardens that can be navigated with wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility aids. We have used the language ‘partially accessible’ rather than ‘fully accessible’ because grass, gravel, dirt, slopes and other elements of the gardens may continue to pose barriers. We also acknowledge that due to diverse needs and limitations, it is difficult to create a space that is fully accessible.

Gardens that are not indicated to be partially accessible pose considerable barriers to those with mobility aids.

If you have any questions regarding accessability, please don’t hesitate to be in touch. We appreciate your patience and feedback as we work to make our events more accessible to all members of our community.
