EVANSVILLE, Wis. -

Evansville's annual Art Crawl will feature 25 local artists at more than 20 Evansville businesses Friday night, according to a release.

The 5th annual event is scheduled from 5-9 p.m. in downtown Evansville.

"Art enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy this relaxed atmosphere and be pleasantly surprised by area artists' high quality work and creativity. We are very fortunate to have such talented artists. Their work represents everything from handmade jewelry, textiles, abstract paintings and more," co-organizer Lisa James, of Allen Creek Gallery, said in the release. "People who come to downtown Evansville Friday evening will have a great experience with artists, music and refreshments."

Balloons will be used to identify Art Crawl locations downtown, and visitors can enter to a win a gift basket valued at more than $400, organizers said. To be eligible for the drawing that will be held at the Night Owl at 10 p.m., participants must pick up a free punch card at Creekside Place and have each Art Crawl business location punched.

"One of the things that makes the Evansville Art Crawl such a great event is that it is so walkable," co-organizer and owner of Integrated Art Group Margaret LeMay said. "You can easily visit every participating business to see artists' works and get punch cards filled. No need to be present for the drawing, but we hope everyone will want to linger and enjoy the artists and the evening."

The event will end with an after-party at the Night Owl, with live music from John Masino and Brian Bebe Duo, according to the release.
