As temperatures slowly warm up and the sun begins to peek out from behind grey winter clouds, the City of Tecumseh is looking forward to a warm spring evening on Friday, April 26 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for the first Art Walk of 2013. Working with Community Arts of Tecumseh, city officials are matching artists of all media with merchants.

“It’s a really simple mixture,” said Paula Holtz, Tecumseh Economic Development Director. “People really seem to enjoy it.”

Local and regional artists showcase their art inside and out of downtown businesses during extended hours. Art lovers can find everything from paintings to ceramic work to jewelry to photography.

Art is available for purchase, and merchants will offer refreshments. When space permits, some of the artists will be demonstrating their crafts.

Visitors will also enjoy live music as they wander through downtown. “People are ready to get out and about,” Holtz said. “It should be good fun.”

Officials are pleased there are several new businesses joining the activities. Holtz said the format has remained the same for the past six years, because it works.

“We haven’t shaken it up too much,” she said.

People don’t need to worry about missing any of the artists or businesses participating. “We will provide a map for the locations,” Holtz said. She expects the map will be available the week before the Art Walk.

Depending on the installation schedule of the new sculptures, Holtz said it may be possible to enjoy the new works of art around the downtown. A map detailing sculpture locations won’t be printed by the Art Walk, but Holtz said it may be available online for those interested.
