It’s a busy month here on Historic 25th Street! We have seven new businesses open since May, a handful of new shops in the works, and we have some major renovations taking place in the 100 block. It’s also event central down here the whole month, starting with one of our long-standing favorites: First Friday Art Stroll!
Here’s just a snippet of what all is happening down here on Friday, September 4th. As a reminder, art stroll starts at 6 pm and goes til about 9pm, though several locations offer after-hours receptions.
Green the World is featuring photography work by Al Perry. Al’s images showcase everything from the natural world to urban sprawl.
Pandemonium Art Gallery has several artists on display including featured artist Hillary Livingston of Hillzart. Hillary does awesome pop-art style wood burnings on jewelry, blocks, wall art, and skate decks.
Also on display is work by McKella Sawyer who does beautiful mixed media painting incorporating anatomical representations of the human body incorporated with trees and birds.
New pen and ink art by Ogden local, Sarah Nicole, is incredibly intricate and weaves humans and mythological creatures with plants, animals, insects, and man-made objects.
25th Street Treasures, located at 105 25th St., will be open longer hours, until 9:00 pm, for the First Friday Art Stroll. Stop by for music and light refreshments.
Grounds for Coffee will be hosting a book signing with local author Sara Boucher. Sara’s new book Becoming Beauty is an insightful look at what true beauty really entails.
Rovali’s Ristorante Italiano has live music (as they do every Friday and Saturday evening). For the art stroll you can take in the smooth sounds of Shawn Holley performing live from 6:30 to 8:30. Pick from their extensive wine list, enjoy a bowl of spaghetti “just like the Italian grandma you wish you had” makes, and be sure to order a bacci roll!
Additional events this month: National Day of Service, USA Cycling Masters, Harvest Moon, Xterra, Harvest Moon Criterium, Two Bit Street Motorcycle Show and more! Follow along on our Facebook page to stay up to date on all things Historic 25th!
