BY LINDSAY MYERS — The final Friday Art Walk went off without a hitch last Friday night, October 27, 2017. The Friday Art Walk initiative was a series of community events celebrating Hyattsville artists and businesses. Participants followed a glowing path through the alleys from Green Owl Design down to Art Works Now and back again. Local businesses like Pizza Paradiso and Satchmoe Art offered special discounts to participants, while other businesses hosted DIY craft events and pop-up gallery displays. The jazz band Brass Connection added a little rhythm to the streets with feel-good tunes. Don’t miss the fun next year and keep Hyattsville creative!
