May Participating Venues
The purpose: By joining many individual venues into an organized art walk, we believe a collective effort magnifies community interest and cultural awareness in the arts.

Sharp contrasts and monolithic images in Robert Wilson’s work come from nature and ideas about the universality of art. He uses opalescent light, interrupted and broken lines, mud-flat browns and heavy planes of dark but vibrant color, exploring emotion through imagination.
