The Art Walk At First Friday

0001

On the first Friday of each month, the Arts Council of Kern features ArtWalk, a family-friendly arts event that showcases Kern County’s best artists.  Come enjoy — and buy — the creations of many different types of artists and craftsmen and women.  It all happens from 5:00 – 9:00 pm beginning at the intersection of 19th and Eye Streets in downtown Bakersfield.

Thanks to Jacob Shaw of KBAK-29 for a great story on ArtWalk
