Last night was the opening of “The Big One” – The Greenw0od-Phinney Art Up Art Walk. And while I only had time to visit a small handful of the open businesses (the Art Walk continues today from 12pm to 5pm), I snapped a few great shots the awesome atmosphere!
It’s not just paintings you’ll see on the art walk, its performance art, too. Crowds were stopping outside of The Greenwood Collective to listen to a little jazz saxophone:
Inside, all the participating studios were open with different themes, a DJ spinning music, and places to drop off canned food for the Greenwood Food Bank. The art was beautiful!
Another huge crowd was gathered outside of the soon-to-be-open The Yard Cafe. It took me awhile to realize what was going on, but Firelight Forge had set up a live forge and was creating pieces in front of the crowd. Turns out, they also created the fence that surrounds The Yard’s outdoor seating area.
As usual, Tasty was completely packed and buzzing with excitement. It may have been the free champagne – or perhaps owner Sheri Hauser’s new ‘do to match their current exhibit, “Take Flight.”
If you’ve never done the Art Walk before, this is the one to go to – it’s an easy walk down Greenwood Avenue, and businesses displaying works are very clearly marked. There are lots of food and drink specials, live music performances, and other fun aspects to the art walk, so head over there today before it’s gone!
