June's First Friday Art Walk offers a unique twist

Written by Muleskinner Staff

Sponsors of the First Friday Art Walk have announced special plans for June. The event will feature plein air artists turning old projector screens into works of art. The screens will become a part of the public arts display in downtown Warrensburg.
Pine and Holden Streets, as well as the alleys, will be bustling with artists creating works from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 7. Artists wishing to participate in the plein air event may attend but must bring their own painting supplies. Screens, stools and easels are limited, however reservations are being taken at the Old Drum Gallery & Trading Co. Artists should bring their own if possible.
A children’s canvas mural painting will also be created at the lawn of Dr. Purcell, on West Culton Street. The children’s art will also become part of the public arts display for the city. Any child may participate and should come dressed to paint.
Donations of old projector screens are needed. Anyone with questions, donations or wanting to be a part of the plein air evening may call the Old Drum Gallery & Trading Co. at 660-429-0111.
