2016 PlacerArts Auburn Art Walk moves to the 1st Friday’s of April, June, August and October 6 – 9 p.m.

Now in its 26th Year, the Auburn Art Walk is moving to a new night with new artists, new venues and new partnerships with local wineries and entertainment. The 2016 season kicks off Friday April 1st from 6 – 9 p.m. at over 35 venues in Downtown and Old Town Auburn and the connecting Lincoln Way and High Street businesses.

Music, visual art, performing art and refreshments can be found during the evening as the community strolls in and out of venues for the FREE event. Along the way there is much to see and do as artists and business owners mix and mingle with patrons and community members. Open to all ages, children are encouraged to experience art with their families and enjoy experiences at many of the open spaces along the route and inside Auburn businesses. Additionally, popular art galleries such as Southside Art Center, General Gomez Art & Event Center, Old Library Art Studios, City Hall Gallery and Auburn Old Town Gallery will have enhanced exhibits and artists on-hand to meet visitors.

There will be a special Auburn city bus shuttle, but people are encouraged to walk the route to enjoy public art including the Auburn Art Commission Painted Utility Boxes and musical entertainment at the State Theater foyer, Herschel Young Park, Central Square and the Clock Tower.
