This expanding event is a year round community initiative that Pueblo Arts Alliance promotes with marketing, leadership and coordination. An Explorer’s Guide is printed biannually, April and November with at least 7,500 copies distributed at each printing. Sponsorships provide Arts Alliance with funding for additional bought media coverage, street performers May- October during art walk, and administrative expenses.
The VanGO Shuttle provides free transportation on a 15 stop loop around the Pueblo Creative
Corridor during every month of the First Friday Art Walk (12 events).
Pueblo is host to a unique outdoor arts scene—Street Beat, Summer Arts Festivities. Musicians, entertainers, and visual artists enchant Downtown, Union Avenue, Mesa Junction and the Riverwalk with free street performances and artists from June through September. Street Beat Auditions are held as a public event on the Pueblo Riverwalk, April 18. Schedule details will be available at PuebloArts.org.
Focus of the three event series provides a closer connection between the community and the vibrant arts culture in the Creative Corridor with juxtapositioned entertainment and flavors from the Pueblo creative industries. The exciting programs scheduled for 2015 are: Floats and Aerialists, Brews and Ballet, and Salsa con Salsa.
From May through September, once a month, on the second Sunday, the Pueblo Creative Corridor will feature Summer Sundays in the Mesa Junction district, at the Rawlings Library.
The Backstage Pass connects the community with Arts Alliance’s vision for the Creative Corridor. The event includes a themed activity, live local music, special Art Walk activities, and Silent Auction.
