By Ann Dwyer

Ann Arbor is an artistic town, no doubt about that. Take it in at the ArtWalk Ann Arbor.

ArtWalk Ann Arbor is a self-guided walking tour of 10 area art galleries, studios and shops spanning from Kerrytown to Main Street. Many of the venues will offer special promotions, sales, refreshments and entertainment to art walkers.

At Kerrytown Market & Shops, Everyday Wines will host a wine tasting and food pairing from 5-6:30 p.m. Artist Paul Hickman of Urban Ashes will give an art talk at 6:30 p.m. in Fustini’s Oils & Vinegars. There will be live music upstairs and chalk artist David Zinn will create one of his sidewalk chalk drawings live on site from 5-6:30 p.m.

Zinn will complete another chalk drawing outside Lena Restaurant from 7-9 p.m. Bill’s Beer Garden, located in the parking lot of Downtown Home & Garden, will offer a $1-off-one-beer coupon that can be found on ArtWalk Ann Arbor’s official event map.

ArtWalk maps were printed in the Summer Fairs & Festivals issue of Art Showcase Magazine, which is available now at nearly 100 shops, galleries and coffee houses throughout Ann Arbor.

Friday, June 21, 2013. 5-9 p.m. Free. Some participating locations offer special deals on art/products. See for a list of venues.

The map lists all of the DIA outdoor exhibits, but as John K mentioned, they will be gone by Friday. Better planning would have helped this event...i.e., schedule it a week sooner to include the DIA outdoor exhibits. This article would benefit from posting a map that easier to navigate than the one in the links in the article, which require several more clicks on other links and finally to a map that is not easy to navigate online. Also, this article should have mentioned that the DIA outdoor exhibits will not be on view.

This is a great event and I hope everyone takes time to explore and support our local artists. Unfortunately, the DIA just announced that they are taking their replicas down this week instead of next week as planned. So, the Inside/Out will be gone tomorrow, Tuesday, June 18. It was great while it was here for three months. I hope some had a chance to take one of the docent led free art tours coordinated by the Ann Arbor Public Art Commission. The Hands-On Museum and the Ann Arbor Art Center hosted these tours and it was great fun for everyone. The Ann Arbor Public Art Commission hopes to coordinate more events like the art tours and in the meantime please support our local artists. We have world-class artists living among us who need to earn a living if we want them to stay here. Besides, living with art is healthy.
