ActivistArtistA comments on Oversight!
"...Boynton Beach plans one." Not exactly right!
The Pioneer of the Boynton Beach Art District, Richard Beau-Lieu, has been sponsoring ART WALKS in "THE DISTRICT" for over 20 years. Continuing this effort and taking the helm alongside Richard are Roly Chang Barrero,(ActivistArtistA Gallery/Studio), and arts adovate and Debby Coles-Dobay the Art in Public Places Administator for the CITY of Boynton Beach. All three have forged an example to follow by creating an ART WALK as a Distination.
"Art Walks do not have to be backdrops to lure folks to shop, drink and dine at out door malls like Atlantic Ave, and Las Olas."
Residents in the tri-county area seem to like the spirt of a cultural stroll where families can learn about art and meet with artists, sans the drunks and shoppers bustling around the Atlantic Ave. in Delray, or Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Over 200 hunderd patrons, children and pets in tow attended ART WALK 11-11-11 with coincided with the Grand Opening of the ActivistArtistA Gallery which in lieu of wine and cheese featured a family favorite, pizza, which was served from a 30 foot long old fire engine by 4-Alarm Pizza!
The next ART WALK at THE DISTRICT is scheduled for January 26, 2012.
We hope you and your family join us!
Weekly tours of THE DISTRICT, Art in Public Places Tours, and Swing Spaces visits are all available in Boynton Beach, the historical ART WALK town.
