Mark your calendar for Arts Walk! On Friday, October 7, from 5-10 p.m., and Saturday, October 8 from 12-5 p.m., 91 downtown businesses will open their doors to showcase the wonderfully rich and diverse resource of visual and performing arts of the South Sound Region. Enjoy two days of drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics, photography, fibers and other visual art. Take in diverse performing arts, from family theater to a variety of musical styles and dance! Whatever art form moves you, chances are you’ll find it downtown during Arts Walk.
