Keokuk Brings Art to the Marketplace

Keokuk, IA – A recent retail event brought an artistic atmosphere to downtown Keokuk. For the last 50 years, Crazy Days has given local merchants a special weekend to cut prices on goods to get ready for new merchandise. As part of this year's event, local artists displayed their works within the downtown businesses. Main Street Keokuk Inc's Joyce Glasscock says the response to the Art in the Marketplace has been positive. More than 30 artists took part in the event.
