UPCOMING ARTWALK

NEW DAY: In our 13th year, we’re returning to Fridays. The Third Friday of the month! Or, Fird Friday, if you must have alliteration.

NEW TIME 5:30PM-7:30PM: The event time is a bit more condensed, allowing art walkers time to hit the restaurants and bars after art walking with plenty of time to get in dinner. Many downtown restaurants are open with outdoor seating and takeout options.

2020 DATES: May 15, June 19, July 17, August 21, and September 18

COVID-19: With the continued rise of COVID-19, we are asking all ArtWalk participants to wear masks whenever entering a venue, if that venue chooses to be open. Of course, it’s up to the venue but please be respectful of their protocol. Some of our events will be virtual.

NEXT EVENT: SEPTEMBER 18, 2020

Some venues will be open with limited access by the public and others will be online with virtual events. Events will be posted as they are scheduled.
