INDOOR ART WALK AT
Local art, food trucks and live music
Chandler, Ariz. – Downtown Chandler’s beloved Third Friday Art Walk returns, indoors, at TechShop Chandler on Aug. 19 from 6-9:30 p.m. Attendees of this free-to-attend event can find food trucks, live music, popsicles, air-conditioning, and of course, artwork created by local artisans.
The location of the event, TechShop Chandler, is best described as a makerspace. Specialized equipment fills the space, ranging from sewing to welding machinery. Members of TechShop include everyone from entrepreneurs, local crafters and ASU students. “It’s the perfect space for the art walks, because, not only, is it indoors and air-conditioned to escape the August heat, but it also is brimming with possibilities and creativity,” says Beth Fiorenza, Executive Director of Downtown Chandler Community Partnership.
Guests can expect to find various mediums of artwork for sale; ranging from woodworking, painting, photography, jewelry and more. “We’re unique compared to many art walks in the valley as several of our artists feature items that can be purchased for $50 or less,” says Karli Ragan, Marketing and Events Manager of Downtown Chandler Community Partnership.
The event will host two food trucks offering food items for purchase, and downtown Chandler merchant Paleta’s Betty will be bringing their cart to purchase an icy treat. In addition, live music will be provided by local talent, Courtney Cotter King.
This family-friendly event is produced by Downtown Chandler Community Partnership. Parking can be found at the garage next to Chandler City Hall and the TechShop Chandler lot. More information on the event can be found on the Facebook event page.
