June Art Walk draws big crowd

June 20, 2001

There were no "Road Closed" signs in the way of downtown Baldwin City Friday night. The June Art Walk brought out folks from all around. There was a record number in attendance Friday evening for the Baldwin Community Arts Council event.

With the perfect weather, art goers were able to take in artwork from local artists and visiting artists from the Lawrence Art Guild. Live music was also part of the evening as Matt Kirby played folk melodies on his hammered dulcimer.

The Art Affair had the talents of area painters and sculptors displaying their works. Horse and buggy rides given by Jay Madl accompanied the event. Those that were fortunate to be part of the crowd that evening would have caught a glimpse of the Baldwin Theatre production of "Annie" as well.

What a great way to get "out on the town" for a fun filled evening with family and friends. The next Art Walk will be July 20 which will also feature a Summer Band Concert and Ice Cream Social. All this fun begins at 7 p.m.
