COVID-19 Disclaimer: In person Art Walks have been cancelled until further notice.

The need to see art in person and to physically enjoy art together with fellow art lovers is understood and appreciated. However, in-person Art Walks are currently on hold until large group gatherings are absolutely safe for every person.

Until then, we can fortunately enjoy the opportunity of online programing and in-person viewing Fridays 5–8pm, Saturdays and Sundays 1–5pm until further notice.
