29th Annual Boylan Heights ArtWalk

  • Dates: December 5, 2021

Just in time for that all important holiday shopping, the 29th annual Boylan Heights ArtWalk returns as an in-person event for 2021. The pandemic challenged our creativity but the 2020 ArtWalk was a way to continue with a great tradition while keeping artists and the public safe. As conditions continue to improve, we feel that now is the time to once again welcome artists and the public to Boylan Heights and showcase great art and our welcoming neighborhood.

We are mindful that we can not take things totally back to pre-pandemic levels, so there will be a few changes. We will limit the number of artists at each location to allow for better social distancing. Artists will be required to wear masks and we will request and suggest that the public do the same. We are still evaluating the possibility of concessions at ArtWalk.

But the important thing is we will once again be able to enjoy visiting with artists, neighbors and the general public as we all enjoy the talents of a wide variety of artists. ArtWalk remains a juried show, which means artists are reviewed for quality, variety and originality.
