Whyte Avenue Art Walk 2019
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, including street closures on
81st Avenue ( between 105 St and 104 St).
105 Street is closed between 83 Ave and 81 Ave.
102 Street is closed between 83 Ave and 82 Ave.
