Art Walks On... First Fridays Unveiled.
The GPCAAC is taking the ARTS to the streets in a different way this year due to COVID-19 and our need for social distancing. We are making ART VIRAL. We have been showcasing area artists works on our website during the pandemic and now we are allowed to go to the streets!
We are limited on locations and the amount of artists so we will be rotating artists during the season so everyone will have a chance to show their art and make some money.
First Fridays is a new problem hosted by Main Street Port Clinton. GPCAAC will be providing the artists for this event.

CORONAVIRUS CONTINUES ITS TOLL ON LOCAL EVENTS
The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council has partnered with Bay View, OH sculptor Jeff Jackson in creating a 23 foot fisherman sculpture on the old bridge/fishing pier. In order to achieve this goal, a GoFundMe page has been set up online to help with the creation of the sculpture. Donations are actively being accepted at: Jeff Jackson's Page on GoFundMe.com. So far over $3,000 has been raised for the project. Please help us continue to bring art and beauty to Ottawa County.
