In coordination with our cultural corridor partners, Beautiful Downtown Lewiston (BDL) coordinates an annual Artwalk event on the first Friday in October. We invite a Featured Artist to exhibit their work and discuss their craft and around 30 businesses open their doors to local and regional artists to display and sell their work as a “pop up” art shows. Many businesses invite wineries and breweries to offer samples or per-glass or per-bottle sales of locally crafted wine or beer. The Center for Arts and History coordinates a free Children’s Workshop lead by the Featured Artist. Community members usually identify Artwalk as their favorite event in downtown Lewiston, which usually draws 4,000 community members into downtown businesses.
