Arwalk Logo - Foot Stamp


L/A Arts would like to send a special thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, artists and participating businesses for an outstanding summer season!

If you attended one of our Artwalk events, if you could take a couple of minutes and fill out our year end survey we would greatly appreciate it!

This will help us continue to raise awareness around the value of this event for our Twin Cities.

See you next May!
