Duluth Art Walk, Food Trucks and New Bike Racks - Historic Downtown Duluth

Duluth, GA (May 4, 2017) Duluth Fine Arts League presents the Spring Art Walk in historic downtown Duluth.

Eastside Urgent Care

The Art Walk will begin at 6:00 with a variety of artists stationed throughout the downtown along with Duluth’s Food Truck Friday. There will be live music and entertainment throughout the downtown area.

On May 12th six new bike racks will be unveiled and these are not just any ordinary bike racks! Each bike rack is being painted by local artists including students from Duluth High School art program.

Howard Brothers’ Hardware provided all of the paint and paint supplies for the artists. The bike racks were purchased by the Duluth Fall Festival. This is a wonderful example of private partners working with the Duluth Public Art Commission to bring more art to our locals. The bike racks were made by a local artist as well.

Also on this evening, over 70 artists have signed up to participate in a Plein Air event called Paint Duluth. This event is sponsored by 2 Smith Gallery on Main Street and Larry and Pam Smith have worked closely with the City of Duluth to bring this event back to historic downtown Duluth. The Artist Reception and Sale will be on Sunday, May 14th at 6:00 pm at Adrian Collaborative on Main Street. This is an opportunity to purchase original paintings of Duluth.
