Shenandoah County developing 'art crawl'

By Ryan Cornell

WOODSTOCK -- U.S. 11 isn't just for bargain hunters anymore.

A new "art crawl" along the towns on Route 11 will showcase art from Shenandoah County's middle and high school students near the end of this year.

Jenna French, director of tourism and marketing for the county, announced her plans for the Art Along the Old Valley Pike event at a Tourism Council meeting on Tuesday.

She said the idea started when E. Pearls shop owner David Lassiter asked her if there was any way to get the schools involved with the O Shenandoah County Artisan Trail.

While she wasn't sure if that was possible, she said she thought there might be another way they could partner together on an event.

"The idea has kind of transformed into something that could be similar to the yard crawl, but features arts by all ages and all types, like music, arts, crafts, and unites all the towns where they can partake in this," French said.

Art Along the Old Valley Pike would have art exhibits and musical performances in restaurants, offices and other businesses, she said, not only to attract more people into them, but also to display the talent in Shenandoah County.
