Second Saturday Art Hike

Yes, I know you'll be tired from your big hike, but just hurry home and consider this a way to stretch out your muscles as well as your imagination! I'll lead you to some of my favorite midtown art hang-outs; many have snacks, music and wine. Expect crowds, especially later in the evening at the galleries near J. Okay to bring older kids, but sometimes the art content is on the wild side, and so is the crowd on the street!

This is about a 4 mile loop, not counting the walks through the galleries themselves.

We will leave the trailhead at 6:10pm sharp, because most venues close at 10, and it takes time to see the art in addition to getting to it.

Look under Files (in "More" tab above) for a map to enlarge and print. I may change it before the meetup, so try to do this close to the date. Click on the map to enlarge and print it out to bring, in addition to a small flashlight to read it with, some cash for a late dinner or snack, comfortable walking shoes and an adventurous spirit.

The times I've suggested on the map are loose. It is easy to lose people in the crowds, and we all like to view art at our own pace, so plan to walk with a couple other people and keep track of them at each venue, (meeting outside before moving on helps, and exchanging cell phone numbers is a good idea) but we won't be trying to keep our entire group together. If you get separated, use the map to get to the next venue or to skip one and try to meet at the following. I hope to grab a late dinner at Ma Jong's and talk about the art before heading back to the cars.

    Thanks to Shaneice for stepping up to lead this event. She did a great job of keeping track of an unruly group of people.

    Is there anyone willing to lead this hike with the map I provided last month? I seem to have a conflict...and don't want to cancel the hike entirely. Please let me know if you are interested...
