The revived Art Crawl in downtown Maple Ridge was a hit with participants and the business that took part,  say organizers.

There were 31 dedicated crawlers who were entered to win 20 pieces of art donated by participating local artists. They qualified by having gone to 10 or more of the 20 participating businesses, and having their passport stamped.

Winners have been selected, and are picking up their prizes this week.

The Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association received tremendous feedback about the event – businesses, artists and crawlers alike were thrilled with the Crawl, said Michelle Zazulak, membership and events coordinator for the DMRBIA.

“I think this is a great way to showcase our art as well as bring in customers to the shops,” said an artist. “I took my neighbor to 16 or 17 locations, and she had only been in one of these locations before, and she has lived in Maple Ridge for over 17 years.”
