Integral Arts Everett cordially invites residents to the opening ceremony and ribbon cutting event for the Everett Community Art Walk on Tuesday, October 1st at 11am in front of Everett City Hall at 484 Broadway. Mayor Carlo DeMaria will be in attendance along with State Senator Sal DiDomenico and State Representative Joe McGonagle to welcome participants and kick off the start of this event.
The Everett Community Art Walk is a city-wide month long art scavenger hunt in which participants are invited to explore the city and find artwork hidden among 30 local businesses and community organizations. The exhibit will be on display throughout the entire month of October, and participants can view artwork at any time during the month. Participation is suitable for all ages, free, and open to the public.
“I’m so excited to welcome people to come explore all the great things Everett has to offer, and help them discover some great local art along the way,” Says Karyn Alzayer, Founder and Board President of Integral Arts Everett. “It has truly been my pleasure to spearhead this project bringing artists, businesses, and residents together to strengthen our community, and we hope you enjoy it and have fun.”
