Walkerville Artists’ Co-op (WAC) is Windsor’s newest Non Profit and has been in its location at 1974 Wyandotte Street east, in Walkerville, for three years. Working as a true co-op, each member is an owner and has a say in the running of the business, making it a success. 30+ local artists, artisans and authors call WAC home. The members wish to share their success with three winning sculptors, and bring a fresh look to the art scene in Windsor.
