The Mid-Atlantic Region’s Newest Arts Destination Prepares For Another Year of Success
Photos and article provided by Mainstreet Waynesboro, Inc.
t started as one man’s vision in the spring of 2013. Before the end of the year, that vision was referred to as the “greatest thing to happen to our downtown in 30 years.” The Destination ARTS! initiative launched last July in the town of Waynesboro, Pa. For three months, seven vacant storefronts were transformed into full-scale art galleries, each of which was open every weekend. During that time, thousands of people came to Main Street to examine an impressive assortment of paintings, pottery and other works of art. “Many artists who we asked to participate in this project jumped at the opportunity,” explains Andrew Sussman, creator of Destination ARTS! “People who grew up in Waynesboro were happy to have their paintings hang in the ‘Homegrown Gallery,’ but we also had prominent artists from across the Mid-Atlantic region submit pricier options that can be seen in bigger cities.” The galleries were staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers, who greeted guests as they entered and sold artwork to anyone interested. Performing artists also played an important part in bringing attention to all that Waynesboro has to offer. Live
music could be heard on the sidewalk each weekend. Because the initiative was so successful, organizers are planning another 15 weeks of Destination ARTS! in downtown Waynesboro. This year’s version kicks off on the evening of Friday, June 27, and a full-slate of artwork and entertainment is already lined up for opening weekend. Sussman says there will likely be fewer galleries open this summer, but that’s a “good problem.” Each of the seven vacant storefronts used last year now have permanent tenants. “Downtown Waynesboro is highlighted by unique architecture, fascinating history, fine dining and a pair of candy stores where mouthwatering chocolates are made. But, now, the town has also been transformed into an arts destination, and we invite you to come see what the buzz is all about.”

They are freely available for the taking from a public tap or for wading in the largest open display of spring waters in the Blue Ridge. A thriving spa community has grown up around the springs.

It's an easy drive or motorcycle ride into the West Virginia mountain wilderness that surrounds the town. There you can find spectacular views and outdoor fun including golf, hiking, biking, hunting and swimming in season. With year 'round festivals that celebrate everything from water to apple butter to quilts, something is always happening.
