For 25 years the Whyte Avenue Art Walk has been “Imagine a 4 km walk through the hearts and minds of artists. Cultural explorers are invited to see art making in action on the streets of Old Strathcona, a vibrant art district in the historic centre of Edmonton, Alberta. Over 500 visual artists bring their art supplies and artworks out into the streets. Together they create an outdoor studio and gallery spanning several blocks. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk reveals Alberta’s hidden talent and provides an opportunity for patrons to curate their own art collection from many undiscovered masters.”
In 2020, during Covid-19 restrictions, we have brought the art behind glass. Visitors can view art and contact the artists to purchase. Delivery of art can be arranged between artists and patron.
