The Nov. 1 Art Walk Color Theme is BROWN! Brown is the color of fall harvest, the turning of the leaves, spicy treats and leftover chocolate from Halloween. The solid color of brown represents steadfast friendships, family trees and bonds, deep roots and supportive branches, and comforting homesteads.


Find works of art and folks supporting the option to dress in shades of brown or representations of hearth and harvest as they enjoy an evening on the town with friends and family.
