Adding to the Coconut Grove Gallery Walk
I know it's been tried before, but perhaps a few other businesses, you know, stores and restaurants, can partake of gallery walk by showing local art on each Saturday. Many places that don't have galleries operate their gallery walks this way, I did a story a few years ago about Punta Gorda, which has various stores and businesses as part of their gallery walk and they have painted sandals on the sidewalks to indicate the locations, which are permanent throughout the month.
We tried that once time with chalk. The galleries were marked temporarily this way.
Speaking of chalk, I know its been tried but really never done in a big format. I'm talking about the Chalk Festival. They have the yearly event in Lake Worth (photos here), which is in February. A closed Commodore Plaza would be perfect for this event.
I think it's time we start bringing art back to Coconut Grove in a big way. If you would like to be part of the Gallery Walk, let's see if we can make it happen. Contact me and I'll put you in touch with one of the artists or galleries who can help make it happen.
