In March 2017, the first Dover Art Walk was born. Artists, businesses, musicians and organizations from every corner of Dover were excited about the prospect. Despite snow squalls, hundreds of visitors still came downtown and were impressed by the high quality of art the community had to offer. Due to the immediate success, the founding team decided to go forth and make sure this happened every month! Dover Main Street decided to adopt the organization as a sub committee in order to make sure the operation continued to flourish. Questions for us? Email

A new Dover resident, Danielle spent the last decade as a creative professional in Somerville, MA. Since moving up here with her husband in 2016, she has found Dover to be the perfect location to build her career and make lasting connections.

She helps run a long-time family business downtown, is an assistant at Dover’s Economic Development Department, writes for the local Radar publication, raises 4 children, and attended college at Great Bay Community College with a concentration in Business Management.
