If I had to choose one event that really summed up downtown Flint, it would be ArtWalk.
Sure, "Back To The Bricks" celebrates our automotive history, and "The Crim Festival of Races" has been a flagship event for decades, but ArtWalk quietly, and creatively honors what downtown is to me.
12 months a year, on the second Friday of each month, downtown venues open their walls to artists, and their doors to visitors. While it is enjoyable even in the depths of winter, ArtWalk seems to gain a little extra oomph during the warm months. This past Friday's certainly started the season with a bang. Along with the great visual art on display at GFAC and Buckham, The Lunch Studio, Churchill's and Good Beans Cafe all hosted musical performances. Top it off with the yummy hors d'oeuvres (not to mention the beer and wine) available at several of the stops, as well as the gorgeous weather, and you had a night that couldn't be beat.
Did anyone else make it out?
