Integral Arts Everett is proud to present the first annual Everett Community Art Walk, a temporary art exhibit that will be on display throughout various city locations.
Artwork from local artists will be sprinkled all across the city in local businesses and community organizations, and visitors are invited to explore the city during the month of October to discover them all. The exhibit will be free and open to the public and will be suitable for all ages.
With more than 20 organizations ready to host over 50 pieces of artwork, the Everett Community Art Walk is poised to present an engaging art adventure, while showcasing local artists and boosting traffic to local businesses.
Karyn Alzayer, founder and Board President of Integral Arts Everett says of the project, “We don’t have many arts spaces in Everett, but that doesn’t mean we don’t deserve great arts events here. So we thought we’d bring the art out to the community instead. It will be kind of like a scavenger hunt, with the public invited to explore local businesses, connect with local art, and engage with the community. We’re hoping to get folks invested in all that Everett has to offer.”
Some of the artwork will be displayed in front windows and will be visible from the street, and for other pieces, visitors will have to search inside local businesses to find it.
With the goal of welcoming participants age 14 and up, Integral Arts Everett is also working to encourage Everett students to apply. Ward 5 School Committee Member Marcony Almeida-Barros, who has been lending his support to the project, says, “We all know that there are many talented individuals within our schools and community, and the Everett Art Walk is an excellent opportunity for our students, parents, and the whole community of artists in Everett to showcase their talents and artwork.”
Artist applications will be open through 7/1/2019. See Integral Arts Everett’s website at everettcommunityartwalk.blogspot.com/p/join-us.html or email us at [email protected] to apply.
The Everett Community Art Walk is supported in part by a grant from the Everett Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
