PUEBLO — The Pueblo Creative Corridor’s First Friday Art Walk festivities begin at 5 p.m. on November 6, 2015. Visit more than 35 art galleries, restaurants, and businesses in the Creative Corridor. Enjoy complimentary step-on, step-off transportation throughout the three Corridor districts from the VanGO Art Shuttle. First Friday Art Walk activities are free.
Pueblo’s First Friday Art Walk continues to provide more than paintings, photography, fiber arts, sculpture, glass, and pottery. Many of the Creative Corridor’s art galleries and cozy shops have special demonstrations of “live art activities.” Locations will present newly hung shows, refreshments, live music, and entertainment. Visitors create their own creative walking tour of a variety of locations with the Creative Corridor Explorer’s Guide, boasting a new cover design by John Bueno. Let the Explorer’s Guide craft an adventure from one mingling of artists and creative to the next. 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 www.facebook.com/PuebloArts.
