The Seward Art Crawl is one of many events during the Seward Winter Frolic : Art in the ‘hood. All day long businesses will be offering specials and local artists will display their work at several venues. At 5pm on Saturday, shoppers, residents, and businesses are invited to gather in Triangle Park (26th Ave. & E. Franklin Ave.) to light up the park, creating a symbol of our warm community spirit during the cold days of winter. The Art Crawl and Frolic are jointly supported by Seward Civic & Commerce Association & the Seward Neighborhood Group!

  1. While appreciating the wonderful art and crafts in the basement of Bethany Lutheran Church, might you consider warming yourself up and sampling tasty, vegetarian, vegan, mostly gluten free, local and global soups freshly prepared by Soup For You!? Soups will be available for purchase.

  2. Sarah H. Seufert says:

    Along with 14 other artists, I’ll be selling fiber items: crocheted afghans, shawls, scarves, cowls, hair scrunchies & necklaces for women & girls. Also sewn items: DOLL bedding sets — quilt & matching pillow, sheet & matching pillow & baby doll hats. All sewn from 100% cotton ad cotton flannel. So, I plan to sample soup and bakery items with coffee both Saturday & Sunday. THANKS for providing homemade food. Sarah Seufert, 2015 24th Avenue South
