First Friday Art Walk Plan Pivots for Growth Opportunities

The idea of bringing a First Friday Art Walk started as a small pipe dream little bitty event, and has grown beyond expectations with a lot of participation and interest from the community. 

However, we just need a little more time to pull this epic adventure together!  We will be transitioning from just an event to an organization, and seeking our non-profit status. 

Our focus will be having the ability to not have to charge any fees to participate, vendors, artists, and businesses, as well as applying for grants to help our creative youth in the Valley have access to supplies to create, to further eliminate the financial barrier to entry. 

We felt that the best option at this time would be to move the launch of the downtown art walk until the spring, to give us time to seize these opportunities.  

That being said, during these winter months, we will be holding a First Friday Art Show at 14 W 3rd St, the first Friday of every month from 6pm to 8pm, starting October 7th (yes, this weekend!) We will be featuring pieces from the youth in our Valley; please email if you have any youth that would like the opportunity to have their artwork (any medium) displayed.  

Join us for some creative fun, learn more about the First Friday Art Walk for downtown La Junta, launching in Spring of 2023! 

Artists are encouraged to come by and leave their contact information for both the upcoming Art Shows and the Art Walk!
