Whistler's Autumn ArtWalk Begins
Are you ready to see some great art? We'll you better get your walking shoes on because the Whistler ArtWalk is back and better than ever! This September 1st to November 30th, Arts Whistler is hosting 3 full months of local artwork for visitors to peruse throughout the village, absolutely free of charge!
ArtWalk this year boasts over 30 unique art galleries, from grand hotels to funky cafes and boutiques, scattered all over Whistler. And there's plenty of diversity for the whole family to enjoy, from graffiti to scenic landscapes this ArtWalk has it all!
Is just looking at art is too boring for you? Well, how about a scavenger hunt to liven up the mood! If you can track down enough stickers from the venues to spell out the word "ArtWalk" you have a chance to win original art. All you have to do is hand in your completed passport to the Maury Young Arts Centre and cross your fingers.
And as an added bonus you take a piece of Whistler home with you because all the artwork will be on sale! This is an amazing opportunity to pick up an original piece by one of Whistler's talented local artists. If you're seriously interested about buying something you can contact Arts Whistler (604-935-8410) to take it home or visit the Maury Young Arts Centre at 4335 Blackcomb Way.
A Whole Season of Art?
The best part? This is just the beginning of
Fall for Arts, a full season dedicated to celebrating the
arts in Whistler! The autumn season is going to be jam-packed with
festivals, art markets, creative workshops, exhibit openings, local
music, and much more.
The opening weekend starts this Thursday at Mountain Square in Whistler Village at 5pm and continues with free events all weekend! Check out the full Labour Day weekend schedule below.
And like we said this is just the start! There's tons of other events coming up this fall including the Whistler Village Beer Festival, the Whistler Writers Festival, Cornucopia, and the Whistler Film Festival. Autumn is sure to be a busy time in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor!
