Published Sep 18, 2005

Rochester prides itself with its rich artistic assets, but art is especially important to one Rochester neighborhood.

In its fifth annual ARTWalk Alive, University Avenue closed off to traffic so artists and their audience could come together and interact.

ARTWalk became an outdoor, urban art trail designed to bring art to everyone. All styles of art are displayed from watercolors to music and dance in the neighborhood of the arts.

"It's a bit different from all the other ones which are great festivals. This one focuses on having artists [to] show how they do their work. We have 40 organizations where you can come and do the art and be part of the art," said Doug Rice, director.

ARTWalk has been nationally recognized as a creative way to improve a city neighborhood. It has received several awards including the U.S. Conference of Mayor’s City Livability Award for 2003.
