APRIL FIRST FRIDAY SHOWCASES SPRING, YARD ART AND SURFACING
PUEBLO, Colo.—March 15, 2013—The Pueblo Creative Corridor’s First Friday Art Walk begins at p.m. on April 5. Many galleries, cafes and shops will be exhibiting newly hung shows, serving refreshments and hosting live music and entertainment. All activities associated with Pueblo’s First Friday Art Walk are free.
On First Friday Art Walk, visitors can create their own free walking tour of a variety of locations by starting at one gallery, picking up a Creative Corridor Explorer’s Guide, and traveling on to another destination after mingling with the artists. Pueblo’s First Friday Art Walk offers visitors more than paintings, photography, fiber arts, sculpture, glass and pottery. Many galleries and shops have special demonstrations of “live art activities.”
The Guide is available in all galleries and participating businesses and includes a plan of activities and a map. More information can be found by visiting www.PuebloPAG.org or follow on www.facebook.com/PuebloPAG.
