Whyte Avenue Art Walk 2015
It's our 20th Anniversary in 2015, more than 400 local artists have created art outside of Old Strathcona businesses each year. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk is a four kilometer art market and outdoor studio running from East Whyte through to West Whyte. It attracts more than 40,000 annual visitors. Surveyed businesses proclaim Art Walk among the most beneficial events in the Old Strathcona area. As a main attraction of cultural significance and artistic interaction, it is a top contributor to pedestrian foot traffic and positive media coverage for our business district. Artists’ fees and volunteers’ time cover more than half of the production and marketing expenses. Sponsorship is essential for maintaining this dynamic cultural event and supporting local talent.
