'Downtown for the holidays' at First Wednesday Art Walk
Lauren Hussey was painting part of a Volkswagen Beetle parked near Mad Men Marketing along East Bay Street. A section of the vehicle is painted by a different artist during every Art Walk. The project began in August and when the work is complete early next year, the vehicle will be auctioned to benefit the artists and the One Spark crowdfunding festival.
It doesn’t take Art Walk to inspire Deloris and Roy Thomas at Jacobs Jewelers to decorate their store’s display windows along Laura and Adams streets. The holiday theme each December has been a tradition for more than 50 years.
Harold Pierce has been ringing the bell for the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle campaign for more than 20 years. He was in front of The Carling Wednesday evening.
The window display at The UPS Store along Hogan Street near Hemming Plaza.
Despite it being December, it was a warm summer evening during the final First Wednesday Art Walk of 2013.

Themed "Downtown for the Holidays," store windows throughout the neighborhood were decorated for the season and Santa Claus was in Hemming Plaza hearing gift requests.

Carolers caroled and shoppers shopped, then headed for the venues in The Elbow entertainment district.

Downtown Vision Inc. has canceled the January edition of Art Walk because the first Wednesday is Jan. 1, the New Year's Day holiday. The next Art Walk is Feb. 5
