13th Annual Art Walk

art-walk-1The Tenney-Lapham Neighborhood Association (TLNA) Art Walk is this Sunday, June 22, from 1 to 5pm.  The Art Walk assembles local artists who open up their homes as their personal gallery for patrons to view their work.  We have been extremely impressed with the beauty and quality of art each year when we go on the walk.  And it’s a great way for guests at The Livingston Inn as well as Madison residents to enjoy the neighborhood.

This year the Art Walk features a near record number of artists, up significantly over past years.  Organizers Sharon and Bill Redinger have told us many long-time neighborhood artists are participating in the walk for the first time.  They also said the variety of media and types of art should offer a broad appeal to art enthusiasts.

If you attend the Art Walk this year, please let us know what you thought of it, and if any particular artist or work inspired you.  And remember to “Turn on Johnson” during the walk to support businesses affected by the Johnson Street construction project.  You can stop for coffee, a cold drink, grab a bite to eat, or check out a shop or two.
