Are you an expert kazoo player? Did you book a musician folks will love? Do you know a talented artist willing to share her work? Can you show someone how to fold an origami crane? We invite you to share your creative talents during Owego's 1st Friday Art Walk!
Organized by Historic Owego Marketplace (HOM), Art Walk happens from 5-8 pm on the 1st Friday of each month, all year long. During warmer months (April - October), HOM sponsors the Art Walk Passport, which highlights creative activities and helps make Art Walk a fun, memorable experience for visitors. In order to be listed on the Art Walk passport, your business or organization must be a member of HOM, and must provide a live performance and/or art installation, with the artist present, during Owego's 1st Friday Art Walk. As you may have guessed, our definition of live performance is broad and can include a musical performance, poetry reading, performance art, quilting demo, dance, etc. Need help coming up with a creative idea for your space? Members of the Art Walk Committee would love to help!* Art Walk visitors have told us that they keep coming back because they like seeing new things. We highly recommend changing things up from month to month- and we're here to help you make that happen.
The Art Walk schedule is as follows:
5 - 8 pm, shops open
6 – 8 pm, live music and featured artist on the deck
8 pm, Art Walk after-party starts
8:30 pm, Passport prize drawing at after-party
If your business or organization is interested in being listed on the Art Walk passport, please complete the following form by the 10th of each month. Not an HOM Member, but interested in becoming one? Give us a shout.
*Please note that individual merchants are responsible for any cost incurred for these performers. HOM pays for the Passport & Art Walk advertising, provides funding for the featured band, and organizes an artistic demonstration on the deck. No purchase of goods/services is necessary in order for patrons to receive a passport stamp.
