Local artists showcased in area businesses

by Dean Owen

Mountain View Museum was host to the launch of the Artwalk event on Thursday July 9th in Olds. We spoke with Osi Cruz-Lahtinen, president of the Wellspring Visual Art Network about the event. From June 28 through to September 8, you can stroll through the shopping districts of five Central Alberta communities to view the talents of local artists. Many local businesses display the artwork and you can identify them by the Artwalk signs. A map listing the locations is available help you find your way through the Artwalk tour.
The Uptowne Olds committee, a group of local business owners in the downtown core, hosted the launch event and many of the Uptowne Olds businesses are displaying the creations of local artists. We spoke with Murray Elliott from the Uptowne Olds committee about the role they play in the Artwalk event.
