Glendale’s Centerline District brings Centerline Artwerks | First Saturdays downtown with art and music turning Historic Downtown Glendale into an artists’ studio as fine artists in a variety of media create new works of art along the renovated walkways of the city’s center.
Held 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with live music from 12 noon to 4 p.m., Centerline Artwerks | First Saturdays are held once a month from October through May and every Saturday from November 27 through December 17, 2011. The First Saturdays series are sponsored by the city of Glendale’s Artwerks project in partnership with the FUSION Foundation in support of the Centerline District located in historic downtown Glendale, AZ. Artists from all medias, ages and talent levels are encourage to apply.
“First Saturdays brings an artistic energy to the area that was very well received when we launched it last year,” said Justine Cornelius, Artwerks coordinator. “Art can be empowering and transforming and its effects are on full display throughout the downtown in our Centerline district during First Saturdays.”
Glendale’s Centerline District is a live, work, and play redevelopment project in the heart of Glendale, located along Glendale Avenue from 43rd to 67th avenues, between Ocotillo and Myrtle.
