The Brewery Art Walk

Twice a year, more than 100 of the Brewery's residents throw open their live/work lofts to show off some of their Art work. The Brewery Art Walk took place this past weekend, so me and my two girlfriends that were visiting out of town decided to drive downtown to check it out.

Below are some of the artists that that caught my eye:

As interested I was in the art, the interior designer that I am was even more interested to get a good look at the lofts, and how one-time brewery had been adapted.

The Brewery functions as a mini community, which hundreds of residents creating a wide range of art. The doors open during the Brewery Art Walk, in which artists show off and sell their works; several studios also sell clothes at sample sale prices, among other things. Parking and admission is free.

It's obviously too late to attend this past weekend's events, but another one is scheduled for fall.
