UPTOWN BUTTE ART WALK
The Uptown Butte Art Walk takes place May to September the First Friday of each month from 5-8pm. Butte businesses host artists and music events through out the uptown district during the evening. Join us this summer as we celebrate the arts in Butte!
Maps can be downloaded here and are posted the Wednesday before Art Walk on Facebook. Maps are also distributed to participating uptown businesses.
Participation in the Art Walk is free for businesses/locations and if you would like more information on how to get involved please email Christine Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or download the Art Walk Registration and Sample Map here.
Thank you for being interested in the Butte Art Walk! Here is a quick FAQ to get you started.
Since Art Walk restarted in 2021 it is only been run by one person, and the Art Walk is looking for more community involvement! If you would like to see the Art Walk grow, please consider reaching out and getting involved. Due to the small size of the people working on art walk here are a few things to know regarding the way it works.
1. Thank you for your interest and support of Art Walk! Even if you don't have time to volunteer, everyone that attends and has supported Art Walk is awesome!
2. The Art Walk is the first Friday of the Month, May to September from 5pm to 8pm. The Map gets posted as soon as all the businesses get updated information to the Art Walk. Delays in information relay means a delay in printing maps. So please submit on time.
3. The Art Walk Map lists businesses that have signed up to be listed on the Map. Inclusion in the Map is FREE. You must have rotating art of some kind special to the evening and be open during the Art Walk to participate.
4. Businesses choose their own Artists. No one helping with Art Walk assigns Artists to locations. Businesses are responsible for their own calls for artists, getting information to the Art Walk if they have a show, and coordinating with their Artist to hang shows and handle sales. No one from the Art Walk is involved in this step. We are happy to let you know if we know a business is looking.
5. If you are an Artist interested in participating in Art Walk you are encouraged to reach out to businesses that have been participating in the Art Walk as of last month. Some may still be looking for Artists. Another option is to form a relationship with an Uptown Business that wishes to participate.
6. The Art Walk runs with volunteer help. A volunteer meeting is held the Wednesday before the Art Walk at the Clark Chateau at 5pm. If you would like to see the Art Walk grow, we welcome volunteers who would like to take on their own projects, help distribute maps etc. Volunteers should email email@example.com to get involved
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR 2023 PARTICIPANTS AND OUR GENEROUS MAP SPONSORS
