In 2009 the first annual Artwalk was a grassroots event started a handful of neighbors in South Main. It was a popular and beautiful evening (check out the photo gallery here). Last year the event expanded to include spaces and activities outside of South Main as well, once again making for some great photos. This year, get ready for best and biggest Artwalk yet, taking place all over Buena Vista!
