Mayor’s Dog-friendly Arts Loop Walk ‘n’ Talk Tomorrow!

Turn your regular evening walk into something special – and feel free to bring your dog along – by joining Lakewood Mayor Adam Paul for the second part of his walk ‘n’ talk about the arts loop, a new walking and bicycling route through creative northeast Lakewood.

WHAT:  Mayor Paul’s dog-friendly walk ‘n’ talk with creative stops along the way.

WHEN:  Walk leaves promptly at 5:15 p.m. and finishes around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26
WHERE: Meet outside Casa Bonita, 6715 W. Colfax Ave. Free parking is available in the lot, but we encourage walking or cycling to the event. Feel free to stick around to enjoy an after-walk informal happy hour at WestFax Brewing Company, adjacent to Casa Bonita at 6733 W. Colfax Ave.
WHY: Come walk and talk with the mayor and project team about the kind of art you’d like to experience along Lakewood’s arts loop.
DETAILS: 1.5 mile route through Aviation Park and the 40 West Creative District Mural Corridor. Feel free to walk, bike or bring your dog. Expect a twilight atmosphere with fun glow-in-the-dark route markers and stops at creative places, including 40 West Studios, where participants can chat with an artist and enjoy free refreshments for people and dogs.

In 2018, the Arts Loop will create an interactive experience connecting Aviation, Walker-Branch and Mountair parks in 40 West through art in the parks and along the route, and will enhance the area’s recreational and cultural assets. The artwork will reflect the unique context, voice and culture of the neighborhoods along historic West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood and the new W Line light rail. The arts loop has received a $100,000 Our Town grant, the largest amount awarded under the program from the National Endowment for the Arts.
