On Friday, May 4th 2012, the first seasonal Art Walk will take place in downtown Issaquah. This event runs the first Friday of every month all summer. The following art walk days are June 1, July 6, August 3, and September 7th. These events all start at 5:00pm and end at 8:00pm.
This wonderful event decorates the streets in downtown Issaquah on the first Friday of every month, kicking off in May and ending with the last Art Walk in September. At this event you will find all kinds of art including lyrical, musical, visual, and performing arts. Besides viewing, visitors will be able to enjoy the live music and participate in hands-on, creative art projects. There will also be some special surprises, visitors may not expect.
Art walks in downtown Issaquah is one of this communities flagship events as it goes into its eleventh years Downtown businesses are transformed into touring art galleries for the night as visitors stroll from one gallery to another. Colorful business card printing and brochure printing can be found at many of the locations for visitors, printed by local companies, so they can learn more about each individual artist. This year’s event is expected to draw around two thousand visitors each Friday. It has a lively, festival style with visitors enjoying the various artistic styles as they shop the streets and dine in the outdoor cafes. Art can be found everywhere including set on easels, hung on indoor and outdoor walls, and live on various corners and stages.
This event has no admission charge and organizers accept new artists regularly. To exhibit, which is juried, it costs the artist $25 per event. For more information about this event, or participating as an artist, call Downtown Issaquah prior to the event or visit Downtown Issaquah’s website.
