Kirksville community takes art walk

It was a beautiful Friday night to take a stroll and look at works of art, and that's exactly what members of the Kirksville community did.

The Arts Association held the first ever 'Art Walk.' The walk was designed to show support for local artists. Over 20 businesses housed those artists and their creations. Some of those creations included mixed media abstracts, oil portraits, watercolor prints, and music.

"We are a fairly cultural community and we have a lot of things to offer and a lot of great artists who sometimes don't get to display their art quite as much as they might like," said Sandra Williams, Kirksville Chamber Executive Director.

Snacks and refreshments were also provided at some of the locations. Members of the Kirksville Arts Association are already looking forward to doing more events in the community. Association members hope to do more art walks in the future.
