Artists and Art Lovers listen up! The Art Walk on Wilton Drive (formerly Island City Art Walk) is back. It’s held on the third Saturday of each month, 7 p.m. to10 p.m. The next one is December 20 on Wilton Drive, in the Wilton Manors Art and Entertainment District.
There was a fantastic turnout for November’s event and organizers hope December’s Art Walk will be bigger and bigger.
Under new management and direction, Art Walk on Wilton Drive, is designed to showcase local artists, craftsmen, musicians, etc. and their artwork in our Arts and Entertainment District of Wilton Manors.
Still have some last minute holiday gifts to pick up? Art Walk is a great place to find presents while supporting local artists and the local community. Both artists and businesses will profit from this cultural experience that brings a multitude of visitors onto The Drive and into our numerous unique shops, bars and restaurants.
Art of all kinds, on a variety of media, will be represented.
“All artists are welcome,” said Art Walk organizer Thomas Alford. There is a fee of $20 and a brief application to complete.
It helps that Alford is an artist himself. He’s a photographer – and the creator of Manic Art Wilton Drive,” he said. Now that he has, he’s putting the focus back on art in the area’s Art and Entertainment District.
“I want to see more community involvement. I see art as a way of bringing people together,” he told SFGN.
December’s featured artist is Kevin E. Peterson. His work will be featured at Art Frenzie at 2151 Wilton Drive.
The next Art Walk on Wilton Drive is from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, December 20. For more information, check out ArtWalkonWiltonDrive.com.
