Georgetown Art Attack

8 Feb

Check out the Georgetown art walk this Valentines Day. Word of advice: bring a date and avoid single’s woe syndrome, the event is going to be focused on, well, romance.

The Georgetown Merchants Association hosts a special Valentine’s Day edition of its monthly art walk Saturday.

In the span of a single year this colorful art walk has established itself as among the most idiosyncratic cultural outings in our region. This monthly promotion is distinguished by its diversity – featuring visual, performing, film, media and applied arts, as well as a wide variety of food, drinks, and shopping.
