2022 Cottontown Art Crawl returns in March

January 19, 2022

CARTER REALTORS is proud to support the fourth annual Cottontown Art Crawl as a Gold Level sponsor. During this safe, totally outdoor event, visitors can stroll the beautiful, historic Cottontown neighborhood while enjoying original work from 115 artists.

This year’s Cottontown Art Crawl will be held on Saturday, March 12, 2022, from 10 am to 3 pm and will have more art, more artists, more food, and more fun for visitors.

“Our staff and our 22 experienced real estate professionals invite you to join us in supporting the Columbia arts scene,” said Tommy Carter, CEO and Broker-in-Charge of CARTER REALTORS. “The event was a huge success last year, and we are excited to be a part of it again this year.”

In 2019, the historic neighborhood in downtown Columbia, S.C. held the first Cottontown Art Crawl. The event drew hundreds of people to explore the neighborhood and its businesses and garnered the 2019 Neighborhood Program of the Year from the Columbia Council of Neighborhoods. The event has seen significant growth since. The 2022 event will be the largest yet sponsored by the neighborhood.

“The Cottontown neighborhood is looking forward to supporting the Columbia arts scene on March 12th,” said organizer Julie Seel. “Artists will be selling their work throughout the entire neighborhood. Some of the artists are emerging, some are quite accomplished, and some are award winning, juried artists. So, we truly have something for every level of art enthusiast,” said Seel.

Due to the success of the last three Art Crawls, this year boasts many more artists than previous years, as well as an accessibility and entertainment corridor on the 2200 block of Sumter Street with artists, food vendors, and entertainment. While artists are located throughout the neighborhood, the corridor is intended to be more accessible to individuals with mobility issues. The event is FREE and open to the public and will also have live music featuring local bands and performers at Indah Coffee’s outdoor stage.

The main host station will be located at 2200 Sumter Street, where information and maps will be available. Maps will also be available at specially marked post boxes throughout the neighborhood.
