First Ever SoHo Artwalk scheduled for this weekend, features more than 40 artists

Who doesn’t enjoy a nice walk and being able to take in gorgeous sites? If that’s your vibe, the SoHo Artwalk is your vibe.

The event is a showcase of local artists featuring painters-at-work, face painting, custom poetry, roaming poets, a dance performance, t-shirt painting, and family-friendly art activities for the kids. Also included are displays of local artwork like pop art, contemporary, abstract, surrealism, fine art, and mixed media for purchase. Stay the entire time for the unveiling of the mural named “Love Birds”  at the Bern’s Steak House warehouse across the street from 717 South and Ava.

It was initially scheduled for Oct. 1 but was postponed and rescheduled due to Hurricane Ian.
