Join and explore the East Buntyn neighborhood at the 7th annual East Buntyn ArtWalk, an outdoor celebration of art and community with galleries, food trucks, a silent auction, and live entertainment.
This year, the event is expected to host over 60 local and regional artists, many being residents of the neighborhood. The media and works will pool from nearly all areas of art, including watercolors, oil, photography, pottery, textiles, woodworking, jewelry, and stained glass. In addition to outdoor galleries, the art walk will also offer their signature 2016 East Buntyn ArtWalk wine glasses for purchase to enjoy complimentary beverages and appetizers while browsing.
The East Buntyn ArtWalk was created with three missions in mind: 1) to help local artists market their work, 2) to show off the East Buntyn neighborhood and its diverse and vital people, and 3) to provide an opportunity for East Buntyn neighbors to get better acquainted through collaboration, art, music, and food.
Details about the event:
- When: Saturday, April 16 2 pm – 7 pm (rain date April 17)
- Where: East Buntyn Neighborhood – bordered by Central, Southern, Highland, and Greer (hub/central headquarters will be at St. James Church, 461 S. Prescott)
- What to expect: vibrant galleries in the front lawns of neighborhood residents, galleries ranging from all types of media and various forms of art, silent auction tent, live music, local food trucks, maps to help locate your favorite artists, complimentary beverages (some with alcohol) and appetizers
- Social Media Scavenger Hunt: Like the past two years, the EBAW will have a scavenger hunt. To enter, participants should come to ArtWalk, take photos, and post them on Twitter and/or Instagram using both #choose901 and #EBArtWalk. A winner will be randomly selected to be awarded with these wine glasses and this pottery piece by Erica Bodine, an ArtWalk vendor.
