Ridgway Moonwalk - Art and Culture in Southwest Colorado

  
  
  

Local artists on display by the light of the moon in the San Juan Mountains!

rcdlogotagline(sm)When the Ridgway Creative District and Weehawken Creative Arts joined forces to develop the first Moonwalk, the question of whether this would become a monthly adventure was an unspoken one. Now, with over twelve full moons successfully explored, it seems the Ridgway Moonwalk is here to stay.

And why not? In 2012, the Ridgway Creative District was formed of a group pf volunteers working toward goals set forth by Governor Hickenlloper for economic development; the goal was to grow and nurture creative industries in our community.

The monthly moon walk, which focuses on a specific form of creativity every month, not only allows one to explore many different artists, but also the shops and restaurants of the area.

The group gathers in the early evening, then travels from one spot to another, viewing artists works, while warming up from the walk in shops along the way.

The Exotic Earth Coffee Roasters is a prime example of ingenuity and expression. Participants will gather at 602 N Cora St, where in addition to viewing the works of local artist and crafter Joyce Withrow, they will be able to explore the intricacies of coffee roasting, an art for in and of itself.

Everyone knows that when the sun goes down in Southwest Colorado, it gets cold quickly, so this walkable event makes a point of keeping everything very close.

Developing a variety of trails for the outdoor explorer, these knowledgeable guides focus on the beauty of the Southwest, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Of course, there will likely be work exhibited by a variety of artists as participants explore the many displays in each of the shops.
