First Friday Art Hop & Artwalk

Grand Haven Art Walk 2016 is in full swing as it continues to enthrall and delight the West Michigan lakeshore with top notch artistry. Public announcements of this year’s winners will be held on Thursday, October 6th at 6pm at the Grand Haven Community Center and the public is encouraged to join in to celebrate the artists.

Friday, October 7th offers a great opportunity to enjoy the venues and see the prize winners before they’re gone, as well as showcasing special musical surprises as Grand Haven’s traditional First Friday Art Hop partners with ArtWalk! Collaboration between galleries, restaurants and retail shops allow you to make the most of the closing weekend.

The Grand Armory Brewery, 17 S. Second Street, will welcome thirsty Art Walkers on Friday as they host a celebration of their one year anniversary. Check out this innovative pub in its historic setting which has become a fast favorite in downtown Grand Haven and beyond. It promises to be a refreshing break for the evening’s art enthusiast.

Meanwhile, C2C Gallery, 104 Washington Avenue, will feature music by Nick Kraus and Kathleen Plus and the work of artist Christine Bishop.

C2C is teaming up with Backpack Blessings, a Love INC ministry combating childhood hunger for the evening and everyone is encouraged to help by donating 100% juice boxes, individual portion cereals, granola bars, fruit and pudding cups or macaroni and cheese cups.

Art Walk 2016’s final weekend promises an array of activities right up to the close of exhibits at 5pm on Sunday, October 9th.
