The Art Walk will be open to the public on Saturday, May 25 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, May 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The Paterson Arts Council will be responsible for publishing location maps, advertising, placing way-finding signs around town and coordinating events.  

A special community exposition has been added to the events calendar. A community exposition is a way for local groups and organizations to come together and demonstrate or advertise their role within the community. Restaurants, schools, businesses, fire and police departments, sports clubs, city hall and artist collectives will each be given a free booth within a soaring industrial space at 60 Spruce Street, courtesy of the Art Factory. An exposition is a great way for community groups to get to know each other, as well as to make connections with the public that they serve.

Please join the Paterson Arts Council, the Passaic County Cultural & Heritage Council, the Art Factory, Great Falls National Park, the Paterson Museum, Paterson Municipal Council and Center City Mall for a weekend filled with art, music, festivities, natural beauty, architectural wonders and community involvement. This free public event funded in part by the New Jersey Council on the Arts. There will be activities geared toward children and familes, as well.
