Hello and Welcome!
The Art Walk Project is a project exploring community and creativity through public art.
I have always loved Street art. Something about it speaks to me on every level and it is one of the things I have always been totally fascinated by. Perhaps it is its subversive nature, the unfiltered messages, its at times unsanctioned appearance, as well as the fact that it is often one of the few places that gives a voice to the unheard and can add critical layers to our ongoing social, political, economic and cultural discussions which makes it so attractive as a creative outlet. Maybe as an artist myself I’m really impressed by the ingenuity, commitment and skill of the artists who take the time to design and share their murals, sculptures, installations etc… in such a public form that I appreciate its creation as a uniquely powerful and at times defiant act.
Started in 2020 the The Art Walk Project is a series of self guided micro tours that were created to encourage people to connect with creativity and their community by engaging with public art in different neighborhoods and public spaces. These tours were designed to create a unique engaging experience for each visitor by curating an Art Walk that features art from across a broad spectrum of vision, experience, style and time and which centers around a specific geographic location
Each Art Walk includes a short written post, a custom map, information about the artists (where available), a photo gallery to help you identify each work and downloadable PDFs of both the map and the artwork list to printout and take with you as your tour, if that is preferred.
As always travel safely. Thank you for your support and thank you for stopping by!
