Art In Business Shopping Event Through Dec. 24 In Watford City

The Long X Arts Foundation is combining the arts with small business this holiday season as it hosts the Art in Business Shopping Event through Dec. 24.

The foundation has partnered with area Watford City Main Street businesses as well as local artists to make shopping local, unique gifts, and art easy and fun. Nine local artists will have their work on display and for sale in seven different retail locations in Watford City.

“With the holiday shopping season in full swing this is a great way to offer a unique experience for shoppers as well as artists and retailers,” said Jessie Veeder Scofield, Long X Arts Foundation director. “The local businesses have been so gracious to host these artists, and the hope is that it will help bring more traffic through their stores as well. Shopping local is so important.”

Participating artists and businesses include Shop Local Artists in Local Businesses this Holiday Season!
