We are excited to announce an event happening this Christmas Season in Wheaton.   A committee of Wheaton residents along with the Jonahre foundation will be hosting a Christmas Art Walk with 12 stores hosting 12 pieces of commissioned fine art telling the Biblical story of Christmas.  The 12 pieces of art are selected from submissions and commissioned for the town of Wheaton from 12 different artists completing work in different mediums and genres of art.     These will be displayed in 12 different businesses in Wheaton during regular business hours.   A map of the art walk will be provided to encourage the community to view each of the individual pieces which tells the complete Christmas Story.   This will run for the 12 days before Christmas.
