Paseo First Friday Virtual Gallery Walk: From Home
As Oklahoma’s first arts district, the Paseo Arts District holds the safety of their visitors, artists and merchants as a top priority. With that in mind, the Paseo is excited to host First Friday From Home, a live stream of all the best things about Paseo, social distance style! During the event, the Paseo will partner with The House Helps to raise money for district personnel who are now unemployed due to the pandemic. The goal is $10,000 and 100% of the proceeds will go to personnel through an application process, similar to a grant. Donations can be made by visiting thehousehelps.org beginning Monday, April 27 through May 8. Paseo merchants are also getting involved by putting items up for sale with half or more of the proceeds going to the fund. Paintings, fashion apparel, jewelry and gift certificates will be available for purchase and will available at the thehousehelps.org. WATCH & DONATE Though we aren’t able to gather in the way we typically would at this time, you are invited to take a virtual stroll down the curved Paseo Drive and get your monthly dose of First Friday magic. Stop in to your favorite galleries and meet the artists. Peruse the shelves of Literati Press Comics & Novels, pick out a new spring ensemble from Eden or some super cute shoes from Betsy King. A Shoe Boutique. Learn artist Carol Ann Webster’s eco-printing technique using natural materials in the workshop of Brayer&Brush. Listen to live performances by Chase Kerby and Kyle Dillingham from the steps of the red “Flamenco” sculpture and powerful readings by Poetic City in the Studio Six courtyard. The Paseo has put together an evening full of everything you miss most about visiting Oklahoma City’s unique arts destination, and they hope you will join the fun and support Paseo workers.
