Black Cat Alley was the second stop for senior pictures. Vibrant paintaings by local artists provides a colorful and different backdrop for my daughters senior pictures. A yoga class was taking place and there were dozens of other people taking pictures but it was not...More

I always appreciate a good art walk. This one is hidden in between two city buildings that at first you wouldn’t notice. Beautiful artwork

Great exhibition of what comes alive when the imagination and the creativity of artists takes control! An Ice Mural worth a formal reception inspired by locals here! In spite of the fact that it's cold and windy enough to "blow the ears off a donkey!"...More
