As Spring arrives, mark your calendars for Warm Weather Walks, our FirstFriday ArtWalks on Ellsworth Avenue from May through September. The Summer gallery crawls
series kicks off on May 2, with additional dates on June 6, July 11,
August 1, and September 5. Each event is held from 5:30-8:30 p.m., and
will feature live music shopping at local businesses and food trucks along the route. Make sure to visit three of the galleries on Ellsworth: Gallerie Chiz, Morgan Glass Gallery, and
Mendelson Gallery to view their permanent collections and special openings throughout the Summer.
Start at the intersection of Ellsworth and Maryland
Avenues, and work your way up to the Pedestrian B
ridge. Located just beyond the bridge is the Steel City Improv Theater, which will
put on a performance at 8 p.m. for each of the Warm Weather Walks.
Local Food Trucks will be set up in the small parking lot located on Ellsworth right before the Pedestrian Bridge. At every walk we’ll have the Pittsburgh Taco Truck and rotating throughout the Summer we’ll also have the Pittsburgh Crepes Truck, the BRGR Truck and Bella Christie and Lil Z’s Sweet Boutique. Follow everyone on Twitter to stay updated.
After that, we recommend looping back
and checking out the many bars and restaurants along Ellsworth Avenue. Just a short walk away are even more options for Friday night fun on South Highland Avenue and Walnut Street.
