Some venues will also host live music, street performances, chalk art and children’s activities. (Most of those special activities will take place on Friday night.)

This used to be a standalone annual event; now it’s the main event of the monthly Art Up Chow Down Artwalks.

The PhinneyWood Artwalk is organized by the all-volunteer Greenwood Arts Council in collaboration with the Phinney Neighborhood Association. For more information, contact the Arts Council by calling 206-783-2244 or email ann@phinneycenter.org.

Please note: The streets will not be closed to traffic during the Artwalk, so drivers please be aware of all the folks walking through the neighborhood, and walkers please be aware of your surroundings.

Greenwood Arts Council’s deadline for next years’ Artwalk map is this Friday

December 14th, 2011 by Doree

The Greenwood Arts Council is about to print its monthly Art Up Artwalk maps for 2012, but first they want to know of any more businesses who would like to join and be included on the map. This includes any business that plans to offer an Artwalk special (such as discounted dinner or drinks, or a percentage off certain items in your store during Artwalk hours), even if that business won’t be hosting any artists or artwork.

The cost to be included is $25 for the year. That gets your business an informational blurb and link on the Art Up website, plus 100 printed maps to give to customers, and a poster for your window.

The deadline to be included in the 2012 printed maps is Friday, Dec. 16.

Make your $25 check out to the Phinney Neighborhood Association (which is the Greenwood Arts Council’s fiscal agent), but mail to Sheri Hauser at Tasty, 7513 Greenwood Ave. N. Seattle, WA 98103, so she can get your info on the map right away. She will deliver the checks to the PNA.
