On any given day in the River Arts District, people spill out of restaurants and bars or wander studios and galleries. But once a month, that activity gets new life as the community lights up with workshops, demonstrations, and live music.

Second Saturday Art Strolls have long been a celebration of local creativity, but a new initiative is taking that celebration a little deeper. In March, the River Arts District Artists announced that its community will embark on an exploration of individual and collective identity through the theme, “Who Am I, Who Are We?” A monthly prompt inspired by this theme will invite the district’s more than 300 artists to offer interpretation through their work.

The Art Strolls will exhibit these pieces and become a stage for cultural exchange + conversation around the prompt and how it manifests in the work.

April’s prompt is “Cycles of Nature,” and you can see it come to life at the Second Saturday Art Stroll on Saturday, April 13.
