The first-ever DeKalb/NIU Art Walk will take place on October 6, 2016, from 5-11 p.m. at 23 venues throughout the DeKalb business district and NIU campus. There are seven downtown DeKalb businesses and community venues still looking for NIU student artists, performers and musicians to host in their locations during the event. If you are interested, please contact The DeKalb Area Arts Council via email at [email protected] as soon as possible. We hope to get commitments to these DeKalb businesses and venues from student artists, performers and musicians before August 30.
The Art Walk will kick off with art exhibition openings in DeKalb businesses, community venues, NIU Museums and galleries from 5-8 p.m. Then, at 8 p.m., the NIU Orchestra will have a jazz performance at the Egyptian Theater.
If you are interested, don’t delay! Please contact the DeKalb Area Arts Council at [email protected] and ask to be included in this new, free and exciting event.
