December 5 Art Walk Color Theme is GOLD! Gold is the color of our star Sol as we celebrate the Winter Solstice and the return of the sun during December. The shiny color of gold represents lifelong relationships, kindhearted deeds, wealth, adoration, and warm gatherings. You will find works of art and folks supporting the option to dress in shades of gold or representations of this festive time of year to celebrate harmony, illumination, and hope as they enjoy an evening on the town with friends and family.
