ArtWalk is back for the ninth consecutive year! This years Celebration of the Arts will be held on the Art Leagues grounds on Buena Vista Road from 11-5 p.m. and will feature a Clothesline art exhibit, two exhibits in our galleries, art demonstrations, live music throughout the afternoon, a community mural, kids activities, and a dance performance by Ballet Theater Company.
In addition, our Schoolhouse building at 87 Mountain Road will be open from 2-4 p.m. and will feature wheel throwing demonstrations.
We will also hold our third annual Light up the Night event on the Art League grounds that evening from 7-9 p.m. For a $5 donation, the public can decorate a white paper bag luminaria and place it on the Art League grounds that day in a temporary art "installation" that will be lit that evening at dusk. All proceeds will be split between FoodShare and the Town of West Hartford Food pantry.
Food will be available during the afternoon for purchase from several food vendors, and we will dedicate the latest piece of public art in our collection by sculptor Philip Grausman at 2 p.m.
Activities are scheduled from 11 - 5. A full schedule of events will be posted on the art Leagues website at www.westhartfordart.org
