2018 Arts Walk Cover Artists Announced

Each year dozens of artists apply to be a featured Arts Walk Cover Artist. If selected, artists receive a $600 honorarium to create an original work of art for either the Spring or Fall Arts Walk Map Cover. Congratulations to Laura Yu and Mark Larson who were just selected as our cover artists for 2018.

Laura Yu (Spring Arts Walk Cover Artist) creates 3D paper sculptures taking inspiration from animal’s especially endangered species. Mark Larson (Fall Arts Walk Cover Artist) explores juxtapositions between humanity and nature through oil painting. Honorable mentions include Veta Bakhtina and Darcy Goedecke who were both selected as alternates.
