Whyte Avenue Art Walk 2017
MORE ART TO SEE ON MORE STREET CLOSURES
Whyte Avenue Art Walk has more diversity than ever. Artists are encouraged to make the art they love and they will be sure to find an audience who loves it too. Patrons welcome. Buy art you love. It never goes out of style.
Over 450 artists are out on the sidewalks throughout Old Strathcona. You can walk up and down the avenue watching artists create art, talk with them about their process and inspiration. Our event fills several blocks along Whyte Avenue, inlcuding a street closure. Artists can also be found in two park spaces.
Looking for a artist? Everyone is listed alphabetically in our official Program Guide.
