Paterson Art Walk 2015

Ama La Vida mural

The Paterson Art Walk, now in its 7th year, takes place in the 19th century buildings that once housed the mills and factories that made Paterson one of the most important industrial centers in the U.S. Part of the Great Falls Historic District, these buildings, which are still largely in their original condition, host large installations, pop-up galleries and open artists’ studios.

    Isn’t is great when areas get revitalized in this way. Loved the art you shared, although the Daddy Longlegs was a bit much – would hate to run into that without proper lighting.

    There is such a diverse array of art work. I love the picture that looks, to me, like a city sidewalk outside a convenience store. I’m not totally sure what to make of it, but it is visually fascinating.

    These pictures are certainly different. One or two are a bit too much on the creepy side for me.

    I just love this kind of thing! This art walk looks especially appealing with all the different kinds of pieces. I’d love to see it. Thanks for sharing it.


  9. All communities are well-served to provide artist spaces such as this one. There’s an alley in Boise called graffiti alley and artists are continually encouraged to put up new murals. It’s never the same for every long and really draws people that way just to wander through. Art is so invigorating in so many ways.

  10. Art walks are very popular all over the world. They are good promotion for the artists and the general public enjoy the walks. Am sure they are here to stay.

  11. Well, this is some dark and moody artwork. Industrial art has a wonderfully grimy edge, and is often surreal. And art walks are a great way of bringing people and art together – many who would never venture into a gallery get a different perspective of what constitutes art!

    The Mosquito is hilarious…imagine a swarm of those things attacking your legs.

    This looks like fun! I especially like the idea of going in a group and hearing all the various comments and feedback. Sort of like having comments on a blog post? And yes, a very industrial collection – not exactly gardens and children. Provokes discussion and ideas.

  16. I love the Eladio Alvarado Mauriz piece. So colorful and beautiful. Though the Tagedy of Dice Games is certainly interesting when you really stop and look at it.

    We have our fair share of these type of events between Williamsburg VA and Virginia Beach VA. It’s not an everyday event but enough times a year to choose one or two. Thanks for sharing some great samples!
