Nevada City Artwalk returns to Downtown Nevada City after a pandemic hiatus. The family-friendly art event held downtown has historically been supported by merchants, local artists, and musicians who set art up in their shops and on the streets of Commercial, Broad, and York, selling, exhibiting, and demonstrating art. Nevada City Artwalk director Naomi Cabral said, “The Nevada City Artwalk is experiencing a total renaissance since being on hiatus during covid. Merchants and artists are tentatively choosing to be part of it, with good reason. Being able to open up publicly like this is still new.”
With the lifting of the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy restrictions on June 15, the community is ready to safely gather again with art, music, and dining. Office of Emergency Services (OES) will be on hand in front of the Miners Foundry with Ready Nevada County materials to help residents and visitors prepare for a safe summer. “We are proud to announce that the Nevada County Office of Emergency Services once again will be a sponsor to the Nevada City Artwalk. I’m completely grateful for their support of local arts. We absolutely align with keeping safety measures in place as our community emerges back out in public and their sponsorship, I feel, outlines the importance of that,” said Naomi.
OES Program Manager, Paul Cummings, adds, “I’m excited to get out and meet face to face with residents again. Talking through wildfire prep is an important part of our Ready Nevada County strategy. With extreme drought conditions already in much of the state, it’s important we reach everyone county-wide. Having some fun and enjoying our local creative community while doing this important work, makes it all the better”
