Friday and Saturday: Birmingham Artwalk 2011

Don’t miss Birmingham’s own artwalk!!! Support your local artists!

Ten years ago, a small group of artists, residents and businesses in the Historic Loft District came together with a good idea – to showcase local art in a way that encouraged people to experience downtown Birmingham in a new and exciting way. With the support of a few visionary investors, Artwalk was born. The first year featured less than 60 artists in a handful of locations. A decade later, Artwalk has grown into a popular destination street festival showcasing more than 120 artists throughout a vibrant neighborhood of residential, retail and entertainment establishments.

Artwalk, scheduled for Friday September 9, 5-10 p and Saturday, September 10, from noon-6 pm. and will showcase regional artists in the unique setting of Birmingham’s downtown loft district, using the architecturally rich environment of area businesses to attract visitors to a one-of-a-kind festival. What began as a modest art tour through the emerging loft district has become a highly anticipated, must-see annual event drawing more than 15,000 people downtown and showcasing more than 170 artists and performers. Area businesses host the artists, offering a fresh, exciting way for the public to experience art— and Birmingham.

The mission of Artwalk is to

• To promote Birmingham’s regional artists with an emphasis on introducing emerging artists; and
• To promote Birmingham’s downtown loft district as a viable economic and residential neighborhood.

The family friendly event is FREE to the public and will feature 3 entertainment areas, a KidZone on Saturday, multiple opportunities for food & drinks and more than 100 artist displays all within 9 city blocks. Wander the loft district on Morris, 1st & 2nd Avenues North between 22nd and 25th Streets to take it all in. Be sure to visit our new pedestrian avenue on Morris with our Main Stage and more than 20 artists on the sidewalks.
