Pueblo’s First Friday Art Walk provides more than paintings, photography, fiber arts, sculpture, glass and pottery. Many galleries and shops have special demonstrations of “live art activities.” There will be newly hung shows, refreshments, live music and entertainment. Visitors can create their own free walking art tour of a variety of locations by starting at one gallery, picking up a Creative Corridor Explorer’s Guide, and traveling on to another destination after mingling with the artists. The free guide is available in galleries and participating businesses and includes a plan of activities and a map.
