Beware of whirling art

Art-A-Whirl features more than 400 artists, galleries, musicians, photographers, and other fellow travelers showing off their work. There are also parties, at least one movie showing, and coordinated events at the 331 Club and Grumpy’s Northeast.

This is a great chance to see the work of local artists while exploring the community. You can check out more than the arts during this event, since restaurants, bars, cafes, and coffee shops are all mixed in with the official Art-A-Whirl event sites.

You can find a complete and official Art-A-Whirl directory wherever you find “the Rake” magazine, and at other places like coffee shops, libraries, and restaurants. You will also be able to pick up a directory at the official Art-A-Whirl welcome booths at 13th & Marshall and Marshall & Broadway.

    I’ve never actually been. I’m sure I could spend all weekend trying to see it all, which I’m sure I won’t be able to do. Looking forward to it.

    I spent most of the day walking around Art-a-Whirl. Although spread out, I really enjoyed the caliber of our local art. I signed up for probably 6 mailing lists and took a few cards to check out later.

    I only got through the Northrup-King building and the rest of the galleries in that immediate vicinity. Next year I’ll plan to spend more than one day on it. The trolley is awesome.

    Put my name in for a print that I saw that I really hope I get. Also participated in the Smooch Project.
