The Downtown Arts Alliance is hosting the last Downtown Gallery Crawl of the summer on Thursday, August 1 from 5 to 9 p.m. The Downtown Arts Alliance is a non-profit comprised of a working board of volunteers. The board ensures that the Downtown Gallery Crawl shows new fine art from local, regional and national artists six times a year.
Guests have the chance to walk through nine unique art galleries, meet artists and discuss their work, enjoy refreshments, and listen to live music. The Downtown Gallery Crawl is free to the public and will span across the downtown areas of both Twin Cities. Original art will be for sale and there will be free shuttle services. For more information on the Downtown Gallery Crawl visit www.downtowngallerycrawl.com.
The board members are involved in many other community organizations and are arts advocates for both visual and performing mediums. The board is dedicated to ensuring that the Crawls stay free and open to the public, while keeping exposure to and education about fine art at the heart of the event.
