Mark your calendars for the inaugural Georgetown Autumn Art Stroll. The Stroll will take place in Downtown Georgetown on Thursday, October 21 from 4-8pm and is an opportunity for patrons to view art and purchase art from artists in Grace Plaza and the Splash Pad at the Art Center , as well as at local arts businesses and arts and culture organizations. The City of Georgetown Arts and Culture Program will provide an opportunity to engage and participate in the creation of a mosaic mural led by muralist and Texas Commission on the Arts Texas Touring Artist J Muzacz. Local arts businesses and arts and culture organizations will also offer unique opportunities to engage with their arts and culture programming. Live acoustic music at Grace Plaza will be provided by Jack Flatau. Subsequent art strolls are scheduled on a semi-annual basis on the Third Thursdays in April and October!
In addition, patrons will have the opportunity to engage with and view conceptual renderings of the upcoming Arts District Capital Improvement Project between Founders Park and Grace Plaza that received Cultural District grant funding from the Texas Commission on the Arts, as well as provide feedback and input on the plans!!
