Alexandria Spring Artwalk April 16

The City of Alexandria along with the Arts Council of Central Louisiana will host the Fall Artwalk on Friday, April 16, 2010 from 5:00-8:00 pm.

The Artwalk is a free, family-oriented walking tour that features visual art and live entertainment. Downtown sidewalks, green spaces, and the alleys will come alive as local artists display and demonstrate their works of art. Artists will have booths set up in the Alexander Fulton Mini-Park. Qualifying sale items may be purchased free of state municipal tax under the guidelines of Alexandria’s designated cultural district.

Visitors can tour our various museums, studios, and galleries to view exciting exhibits and live music within a few city blocks. Kid Merv, a New Orleans jazz band, will play on the steps of City Hall.

Local businesses open for Artwalk include: Alexandria Museum of Art, River Oaks Square Arts Center, Finnegan’s Wake, Diamond Grill, Tamp and Grind Coffee House, T.R.E.E House Children’s Museum, and many, many more. The Tom Peyton Memorial Arts Festival will open on the night of the Artwalk as well.
