A Ride Around the June Art Walk

Poet Jim Bolt performs on "The Hippodrome," the new incarnation of the Art Walk DASH that transported gallery goers with frequent stops on corners and performances on board.

There was excitement in the air at the June Downtown Art Walk. New sponsors, new gallery spaces, a new bus, and many in the crowd were from beyond the 110. But there were some bumps in the row that kept it from being a perfect night.

Trucks for a film crew took up parking spaces on Spring, and they brought in detour signs to take up the remaining spots for filming at 9pm sharp, which is now the peak of Art Walk, not the end. And then there was the team on Fig that was like last night’s weather; at 6pm it was warm, and later in the evening things just went cold.
