Mount Pleasant Youth Art Walk Ends May 31

Student art in Nana's front display window.
The Mount Pleasant Youth Art Fair and walk is happening right now and will continue through the end of May. Student and youth artwork is on display at venues on Mount Pleasant Street NW between Park Rd and Hobart St. The artists are from schools and after-school programs in and around the neighborhood; including Bancroft Elementary, Rosemount Center and Bell Multicultural High School. 

Pictured to the left is student artwork in the front window of Nana (3068 Mt P St N). It is among 11 venues displaying works. The others include Dos Gringos, El Pollo Sabroso, Past Tense Studio and Heller's Bakery. Here's a cool poster with the full list of stops on the art walk (PDF). Stop by one of the venues (patronize the business if you can) to support this tradition that's more than a decade old. This fair is sponsored by the Mt. Pleasant Business Association and the Friends of Mt. Pleasant Library. Enjoy!
