PUEBLO CREATIVE CORRIDOR SEPTEMBER FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK--FALL BOUNTY
PUEBLO, Colo.—August 15, 2014—The Pueblo Creative Corridor’s First Friday Art Walk festivities begin at 5 p.m. on Sept. 5, and highlight nature, rock art, beauty, anniversary events, as well as offering a unique look via photography of Pueblo’s past and present. And, the performers will be entertaining in every district that night, including Runaway Grace, Mason Miller, The Band Sparrow, Ado Hernandez and Cinco Pa Winds, and in galleries are performers such as Salvatore Pace, Fireweed and Inner Tribal Spirit Drummers. So come visit! There are more than 35 art galleries, restaurants and businesses in the Creative Corridor. Ride the VanGO Art Shuttle for free, convenient traveling around the Creative Corridor loop with step-on, step-off service at 13 favorite locations. All activities associated with First Friday Art Walk are free.
Pueblo’s First Friday Art Walk continues to provide more than paintings, photography, fiber arts, sculpture, glass and pottery. Many galleries and shops have special demonstrations of “live art activities.” There will be newly hung shows, refreshments, live music and entertainment. Visitors can create their own free walking art tour of a variety of locations by starting at one gallery, picking up a Creative Corridor Explorer’s Guide, and traveling on to another destination after mingling with the artists. The free guide is available in galleries and participating businesses and includes a plan of activities and a map.
