Up to 40 local artists will create pieces of art inspired by the theme “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Celebrating Achievements of Women”. During the event, all original pieces will be auctioned off by our favorite auctioneer Viki Williams, a.k.a. Ted Brightwell, who creates a one of a kind auction experience. Each piece will be digitally placed on the StreetWorks signs down Washington Street, continuing the goal of creating a mile-long art gallery on Charleston’s East End. Music provided by the Bark-o-Loungers.
This year’s ARTS WALK, sponsored by Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau, Main Street Morgantown, Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) and Arts Monongahela, will take place on Friday, September 22 in downtown Morgantown. Arts Mon, MAC and Appalachian Gallery are information points for the Arts Walk– you can get the inside scoop on where the artists are and what’s happening downtown. Arts Mon is located next to Huntington Bank on the corner of High Street and Pleasant Street. Monongalia Arts Center is easy to find, on the corner of High Street and Kirk Street and Appalachian Galley in on Walnut Street across for the parking garage. Participating businesses and places with artists are marked by lit tiki torches. Plan the perfect Friday night. From 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., you can stroll through over forty downtown businesses and see artwork from local artists. As you stroll through downtown collect four fantastic bookmarks featuring Morgantown Area Artists. These artists are culture-makers who challenge the status quo and advance our region’s Arts… plus they are your neighbors.
