Pueblo, Colo. ― The Pueblo Creative Corridor’s First Friday Art Walk festivities begin at 5 p.m. on January 5, 2018. Stroll the sunny streets of downtown Pueblo and visit more than 35 art galleries, restaurants and businesses throughout the Creative Corridor. First Friday Art Walk activities are free.
Pueblo’s First Friday Art Walk features more than paintings, photography, fine arts, sculpture, glass, and pottery. Many of the Creative Corridor’s art galleries and shops have special demonstrations of live art activities. There will be newly hung shows, refreshments, live music, and entertainment. Visitors create their own walking art tour of a variety of locations by starting at one gallery, picking up a free 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. More information can be found at PuebloArts.org or follow on facebook.com/PuebloArts.
