Art Crawl, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving as a catalyst to celebrate the emergence of new and innovative artists in and around Central Florida. It is designed to spotlight emerging artists, performers, other area art organizations, and grass-root art movements that may not fit the common tradition of art festivals in the area. The ultimate desire is to highlight artists using their skills in contemporary media and content.
