“The Art Center is pleased to partner with other art spaces in the hope that we can come together to celebrate and support the vibrant arts community that is growing in our downtown. As this project continues, we envision other organizations joining us in making each subsequent event better and better,” art center director Todd Behrens said in a post on their site. website.
People were able to view the artwork on display at the art center and then proceed to the Ho-Chunk Center to visit two other art galleries.
The last stop was the Art Sux gallery.
Artwalk is a way to celebrate and support the local artistic community.
“We just want to invite people here, open our doors,” said Christopher Atkins, curator of the Sioux City Art Center. “We’re open late on Thursdays anyway, so we’ll already be here until nine. People usually end up congregating here, grab a bite to eat, have a drink or two, learn a bit more about what’s going on with our exhibits, and then move on to the next location.
One of the Art Center exhibits is currently called Towers of Tomorrow. This exhibition allows visitors to create their own towers with over 200,000 Lego bricks available.
According to their website, another Artwalk is scheduled for October 13. For more information, visit their Facebook page or their website.
