Art Around Town: First Wednesday Art Walk

Nov

03

Last night there was a great opportunity to see all that downtown has to offer to the community of Jacksonville.  Were you there?

First Wednesday Art Walk provides the opportunity for artists and artisans to display their work, musicians to fill the air with wonderful sounds, and local businesses to flourish.  The people of Jacksonville, in turn, have the opportunity to experience the life of the city in a much more exciting way than the typical stroll down Laura Street.

Last night, Hemming Plaza was filled with vendors, painted pianos were being played, mustaches being worn, and there was even the odd Star Wars character roaming the sidewalks.  This month Art Walk celebrated Movember, a worldwide movement aimed at raising both funds and awareness to change the face of men’s health, in particular prostate cancer.  Throughout the streets you could, for a donation, design your own mustache, sample local brewer Intuition Ale Work’s new special Movembrew, or take home some yummy baked goods.  If you have not yet experienced the excitement that is Art Walk, I strongly encourage you to mark your calendar for the first Wednesday in December and join in on the fun.  Not only is it a great way to support the arts and culture in Jacksonville, but also to see all that downtown has to offer.
