Local Art Seen: More Images from the Downtown Arts Walk in Duluth

A Kirsten Aune design.
Saturday I shared a little about the new Duluth Arts Walk that was initiated by the Downtown Arts Collective as well as some photos from my Friday early evening walkabout. I'm curious how the art walk was initiated. Is there a relationship between the DAW and the Duluth Public Arts Commission? Or did it begin as a group of independent galleries and artists rolling up their sleeves and doing something?

For the general public it probably doesn't matter much how "art happens" in Duluth. What matters more, to those who want to know, is when and where to go see it or be part of it. The Downtown Arts Walk is slated to continue year-round on the last Friday of each month. A map has been generated that also lists the participating venues. (Follow this link to the Map.)

Am looking forward to seeing what else is on tap for July.
Meantime, art goes on all around you. Engage it.
