The New Ulm Art Walkabout is an art show and sale that takes place the second Friday and Saturday of November (Nov 12 & 13, 2010) as part of the Shopping Opener special events. It gives new meaning to the art of shopping. There are two ways for artists to participate:
The walkabout provides space for artists to show and sell their work in downtown locations, giving shoppers the opportunity to shop for unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for the art lover on their shopping list. The artist is there to explain their work, giving the buyer a true appreciation of the process.
For the Juried Show, artists submit artwork to be judged by a professional, and monetary prizes are awarded to the three “best in show” as well as to a “people’s choice.” Submitted pieces are displayed and can be voted upon throughout the two-day event. A closing reception which is open to the public is held on Saturday evening, where winners are announced and prizes awarded.
