The Downtown Traverse City Association (DTCA) will host the spring Downtown Art Walk, sponsored by ABC 29&8 on Friday, May 2, from 5 – 9 pm. The Downtown Art Walk is local favorite and will showcase 18 art exhibits throughout Downtown Traverse City. The public is invited to enjoy an evening of art, refreshments, food and music on a self guided tour throughout Downtown Traverse City. Artists from the Grand Traverse region and beyond will be present to feature their works.
Refreshments will be offered at various locations throughout the evening. Purchase a commemorative wine glass and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Downtown Public Art Fund. Most recently, the DTCA utilized the Downtown Public Art Fund to commission local artists to reinvent car hoods into works of art. A permanent installation of the car hoods, mobile style, in the stair towers of the Hardy Parking Deck will be unveiled on Saturday, May 3.
Participating galleries will also be offering prize drawings throughout the evening. Walking maps will be available at each participating gallery and the Downtown Traverse City office. Here’s a glimpse of who will be featuring an art exhibit:
