Chester Made in Action: Arts Loop

An Arts Loop was held in Chester's historic Overtown in July 2015. During the event the community recognized nearly 200 Chester Made Champions: people, events, heritage sites, organizations, facilities, and businesses that help shape the creative soul of Chester.

The Arts Loop was curated by Devon Walls of the The Artist Warehouse and presented by PECO.
