Every summer the WCAA organizes a group of artists to open their studios to the public and display their work. This is a great way to meet and observe talented local artists. A brochure is published outlining the artists, their work, and directions to their studios. Hundreds of people converge on Wayne County every summer to meet these local artists.
Details can be found for this year's tour on our Studio Tour page.
From the colorful and zany "Wayne Deer" to "Seat Waves" and "Table Talk", WCAA`s public art project has been helping to create an annual museum in Wayne County from May to August for everyone to enjoy. Yearly over 45 WCAA artists build, design or re-interpret the project that span the spectrum of styles - whimsical, rustic, sculptural, traditional or contemporary and each one is unique.
After being on display during the summer months, the Wayne County Arts Alliance invites the community to attend the gala finale with the Auction in late August at the PPL Wallenpaupak Environmental Learning Center near Hawley, PA. The auction is to benefit the Wayne County Arts Alliance, whose programs and events "enrich the community through the arts".
2012's Project is entitled Crate Expectations. The Benefit Art Auction will be on Saturday August 25, 2012 at 7:00 pm at the PPL Wallenpaupak Environmental Learning Center
