2016 WHEATON CHRISTMAS ART WALK



We are excited to announce an event happening this Christmas Season in Wheaton.  A committee of local 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.

Don't miss the LIVE NATIVITY being held on Saturday, December 17 in the garden center of Carlson's Art Store on Front St. in Wheaton.  There will be a 20 minute play every 30 minutes from 11-2pm along with live animals.
Also, above Moore's Toy Store, there is will be time for "Make and Take Art" for children, 2:30-4:30.  Come bring your children to create a piece of art inspired by the Christmas Scriptures!



The Jonahre Foundation’s mission, a non-for-profit organization, is to bring Truth to reality through the biblical storytelling through art. Having presented this art walk model in the community of Barrington in 2015, Wheaton has been selected to host this event in 2016.  Go to www.jonahre.com to learn more about the organization and to www.christmasartwalk.com to view artist videos as well as to download the interactive map.
