The Walk In Art Center:

A Brief History

The Walk In Art Center began as an idea

The conception of the Walk In Art Center came out of a five part strategic plan from the Borough of Schuylkill Haven. The focus of the plan was to bring more visitors to Schuylkill Haven and revitalize the borough.
The plan includes:

  • Penn State
  • Developing the river area for recreation
  • The Island Project, which includes sports fields, a pavilion and a future amphitheater.
  • Downtown revitalization
  • The Walk In Art Center

    Please take a few minutes and watch "The Vision", a video by Mr Bert Evans that tells the whole story and plan for the Walk In Art Center.
