Welcome featured artist Josh Ulrich
Beautiful Downtown Lewiston (BDL) is pleased to welcome adventure photographer Josh Ulrich back to his hometown as the featured artist for Artwalk 2017, planned for the evening of Friday, October 6.
Josh is an adventurer, storyteller, and aspiring photographer that feels most at home amongst the lush, green pines and endless, jagged peaks of the great American west. His passion for photography began when he found himself daydreaming of mountains during his old 9 to 5 routine. From that moment on he set out to turn that dream into an obsession, exploring everything the wilderness has to offer and capturing the moments along the way to share with his friends and family.
New for this year’s Artwalk: Art installations in vacant windows
BDL is working with property owners and artists to develop customized art installations in storefront windows in the fall of 2017. The project will bring vibrancy, vitality and light to vacant storefront windows as the days get shorter in the fall. Similar programs have been coordinated by Window Dressing in Spokane and Spaceworks in Tacoma, who report that properties with art installations attract the attention of entrepreneurs looking for business space while the lighted windows also deter nuisance behavior.
Artist applications are due August 30 and selected artists will be announced on September 6!
