Columbia City ArtWalk -- Bohemian Backstreets

Last month, Community Arts Create kicked off the first Columbia City ArtWalk, Bohemian Backstreets. There were art vendors of all kinds, youth marimba groups and steel pan groups, a performance dance group, a puppet performance, specialty ice-cream by Chef Allyss Dillon, art activities by non-profit Social HeARTistry Educators, and a community art project with CleanScapes trashcans.

With activities that anyone can enjoy, young or old, and a variety of art to soak up, Bohemian Backstreets is a fun summer event that everyone can attend. Next month's ArtWalk is June 16 — it will be event better with more artists, performers, and art activities.
