FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

February 23, 2015 (De Pere, WI): Definitely De Pere is pleased to announce the dates for the 3rd Annual Downtown De Pere Art Walk Series, presented by Starry Realty, taking place over an expanded six evenings this summer. Two successful years after the introduction of this gallery style event to De Pere, the Downtown Art Walk Series will be larger than ever in 2015 with more dates and artists than ever before. In 2015, the following six Friday evenings will have an Art Walk from 5-8 pm: May 29th, June 12th, June 26th, July 17th, July 31st and August 14th.

Venues will be downtown De Pere businesses, all within the Definitely De Pere downtown district, within easy walking distance from one another. The event is juried, but artists pay no application fees or commission to participate, as an incentive to be more inclusive of the emerging and professional artist community in our region. Artists of all mediums and skill levels are welcomed to apply.

The Downtown Art Walk series is a part of a larger effort to emphasize original artists and musicians. On the six Friday evenings opposite of these Art Walk dates, Definitely De Pere, the City of De Pere and Willems Marketing (the host organization of Mile of Music) will bring live musicians from the Mile of Music portfolio to perform across Downtown De Pere venues in a new music-themed event. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, 12 weekends will be centering on arts and music in downtown De Pere, a theme in tune with the City of De Pere's 125th anniversary.

Artists can apply to participate in the 2015 Art Walk series by downloading an application from the Definitely De Pere Art Walk page at: www.definitelydepere.org/artwalk. Applications can also be sent by mail by contacting Definitely De Pere directly. For full consideration, artists should apply by April 10th, 2015.
