The City of Georgetown is hosting two arts events for our visitors and resident art lovers in April.
Spring Art Stroll
Patrons are invited to come view and purchase art, enjoy live music, and engage in arts activities at various locations in the Downtown Georgetown Cultural District from 4-8 p.m. Thursday, April 21.
Arts activities will take place at locations including Grace Plaza, Grace Chapel with the Full Circle Speaker Series from 5-7pm, Georgetown Art Center, local arts businesses, Williamson Museum, Georgetown Public Library, and the Shotgun House Museum. Visitors are also invited for photo ops and face painting on Rock Street before joining the Mayor at 7:15pm for a dedication of Georgetown’s newest mural, “Traditions to the Future” by Mila Sketch.
Participants in the event will also be able to view and provide feedback on the new street mural and decorative crosswalk at the Georgetown Public Library while enjoying offerings from Southbound Sips and Scoops Ice Cream, as well a blockbuster art exhibition inside the Library.
Arts and Culture Brown Bag Luncheon
The quarterly Arts and Culture Brown Bag Luncheon returns at noon April 14. Pack your lunch and join us at the Georgetown Public Library for a presentation by Lynn Osgood, executive director of Civic Arts. Her presentation “Arts Leading the Way in Community Development” breaks down the details of how to use the arts and public art in community development projects and other creative place-making initiatives. Updates from arts and culture stakeholders in the Downtown Georgetown Cultural District will follow Osgood’s talk.
