Art Walk to feature band
There will be more than just art in downtown Baldwin Friday night.
This month's Art Walk, sponsored by the Baldwin Community Arts Council, will feature not only the artwork of several area artists, but a community band and ice cream as well.
"We're pleased as usual to have the community band perform as always," Star Novak, BCAC publicity chair, said. "We look forward to their performance every year."
This is the eighth year for the free annual summer outdoor art show, which features a variety of art by local and area artists. This year's Art Walks will be on the third Friday of each month through September.
Friday's Art Walk, which runs from 7 to 9 p.m. downtown Baldwin, is the second of the summer. Novak said a number of artists with a wide variety of art will be on display on the downtown sidewalks, as well as in a few of the businesses like Espress Yourself and the Signal office. Unlike last month's Art Walk, The Collective will not be open Friday.
Novak said strawberry, chocolate and vanilla ice cream will be served throughout Art Walk and the community band will be playing in the vacant lot on High Street in between the post office and the former lumberyard. She recommended those who want to listen to the band bring lawn chairs.
She encouraged the Baldwin community to spend Friday night downtown.
"You'll get to enjoy the fantastic art," she said. "Support the community band and the Baldwin Arts Council and sit in the shade and enjoy free ice cream."
