November 4 Art Walk Color Theme is BROWN! Brown is the color of fall harvest and abundance, the turning of the leaves, and seasonal spicy treats. Brown represents solid assemblies, community minded activities, steadfast alliances, comforting homesteads, family trees with deep roots and supportive branches. You will find works of art and folks supporting the option to dress in shades of bountiful brown or representations of hearth and harvest as they enjoy an evening on the town with down to earth friends and family.
