Fremont First Friday Art Walk On June 3rd

By Sean Keeley · June 2nd, 2011 · No Comments

It’s that time again. Friday, June 3rd is the first Friday on the month and so the Fremont First Friday Art Walk will go down between 6-9 pm.

It’s a special Fremont Fair-themed Art Walk and if you’d like to play a part in making the Fair as fantastic as possible, here’s your chance:

MAKE ART WITH THE FREMONT ARTS COUNCIL in LENIN SQUARE
With the Fremont Fair coming up, we need help creating lots of colorful adornments for the grand event! Artist Sonia Telesco will have a tent set up next to the Lenin statue during the art walk, where she will be sharing her celebration art tie dye techniques to create this community art project; an assemblage of hand painted banners decorating the street and stages for the Solstice Parade! All ages welcome to participate (kid friendly with adult assist). There is no charge for this fantastic lesson in celebration arts, but you can always donate to the Fremont Arts Council & the Solstice Parade at this link.

Some of the other locations and artists on the walk include…
