The second Sandusky Art Walk of 2011 is taking place from 5-9 p.m. Thursday, June 2 in Downtown Sandusky — and based on the turnout of last May’s event, it looks like it’s going to be a huge success.
There are over 46 artists signed up to show off their creative wares at the June 2 event, and there will be some new locations added, too. In addition, more artists in different mediums are getting involved. For example, the Firelands Writing Center will join the festivities this Thursday, with poets Joel Rudinger and Larry Smith to perform with musician Dan Murphy at Mr. Smith’s Coffee House from 6-7 p.m.
For those of you who missed the first Art Walk, here’s what to expect: plenty of downtown businesses opening their doors to the community, often providing delicious snacks and drinks to those who enter. The featured artists are interspersed throughout the downtown area, setting up their art displays in a participating business.
Adding to the event is the classic film showing at the Sandusky State Theatre, located at 107 Columbus Avenue. June’s featured flick is “The Philadelphia Story,” a romantic comedy starring Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn and James Stewart. It’s about a rich woman’s ex-husband and a tabloid-type reporter who turn up just before her planned remarriage, no doubt causing some drama. The movie begins at 8 p.m. and admission is just $3.
