Join in the fun of the monthly Art Walk in downtown Vincennes the first Friday of each month. There is artwork by local artists and snacks. Several art galleries join in opening their collections for extended hours on these Fridays.
Sieur de Vincennes
Artist Bill Wolfe has created a life-size, clay statue of François-Marie Bissot, Sieur de Vincennes, the founder of Vincennes. The statue is currently on display at the Knox County Public Library in Vincennes. The goal is to have the statue cast in bronze and placed on the river walk along the Wabash River in Vincennes. Funds are currently being raised to see this project completed. Checks may be sent to the Knox County Community Foundation, P.O. Box 273 Vincennes, IN 47591 include "statue" as a note. More information is available at the Friends of Vincennes' Heritage Facebook page.
