An annual art contest is now on display in downtown Kewaunee for you to take part in. Winners of the Kewaunee Art Walk were decided in June when a panel chose between a variety of banners showing the works of local artists. Now residents can join in on the fun by grabbing a ballot for the People’s Choice Award, which can be found at the Kewaunee Area Chamber of Commerce. All of the banners showing artwork submissions can be viewed by walking around downtown, and each banner has a number to identify it. Renae Schlies, who helps facilitate the competition, complimented the diversity of artists in it this year.
The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be announced at Kewaunee’s Concerts in the Park in September. Art Walk award winners are listed here:
- 1st place: Abby Ostermeier
- 2nd place: Samantha Parma
- 3rd place: Judy Delain
- Honorable mentions: Robin Nelson, Linda Arendt, Cami Prokash, Carissa Crawford
