The Mercer Street Grassroots District in Princeton hosted their first ever Art Walk this evening.
Over a dozen locations on Mercer Street invited local and Appalachian region artists into their storefront for the event.
Even the sidewalks were decorated in chalk marketing it.
According to one store owner, the Art Walk is a moment they’ve all been waiting for.
“There’s a critical mass of really creative people that have located in our neighborhood. A lot of them have lived in different cities and have seen and been a part of art scenes all over and so we’ve all kind of been waiting for this moment in time when we would have that critical mass that we can really build this neighborhood together with. So now here we are,” said Lori McKinney, Co-owner of RiffRaff Arts Collective.
They hope to make the Art Walk a quarterly event.
