Past Events

Walk+Bike the Arts
Monday,  June 11, 2018, 6-8pm
The Kettering Arts Council offered a new family experience, which took place at the Kettering Block Party on Monday, June 11, 2018.
A collaboration between the Kettering Arts Council and Kettering’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Walk+Bike the Arts was re-imagined as a self- guided tour for children and their parents of Lincoln Park’s public art. Families created a meaningful experience and were educated about Kettering’s culture and dedication to the arts. B.P.A.C. gave out and fitted bike helmets for kids and the Kettering Police Department gave biking and pedestrian safety talks throughout the Block Party.
Arts Council members were stationed throughout the tour to talk about each piece and its history in Kettering. Participants who finished the tour and their passport (given at the beginning of the tour), were rewarded with a special prize pack. Everyone who brought their bicycles and/or walking shoes to Kettering’s Block Party had an amazing time!
