We just posted updates for the 2009 Atlantic Avenue ArtWalk to their website: http://atlanticavenueartwalk.com/. The ArtWalk is put together by COlab Projects and is in it’s sixth year now. Of note – the 2007 PSA video won an emmy award last year. The PSA for 2008 was nominated again this year! Both were directed by Mac Premo.
Here is a little more about Artwalk from their site:
Join us the weekend of June 6th and 7th for the sixth annual Atlantic Avenue ArtWalk. ArtWalk is a self-guided tour of open artist studios and area exhibitions, a range of public art projects, special events, with local merchants hosting a range of artwork and events. ArtWalk provides a relaxed setting for dialogue, collecting, and for artists to discuss current bodies of work, while offering viewers a glimpse into the creation process.
ArtWalk includes artists across all media, participatory events, film, public art, live music, and activities for families and children of all ages. Visitors can enjoy exhibits, view and buy work, meet the artists and sample the Avenue’s restaurants, shops and bars at their own pace. To add to the weekend festivities, local businesses host receptions while area restaurants and bars offer special rates to ArtWalkers throughout the weekend.
ARTWALK EVENTS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
