On Saturday, July 12, 2014, St. John’s Institute proudly “walked the [art] walk” by hosting the first-ever live show and AFTER-PARTY for the artists, patrons, and general passers-by of the 19th Annual Whyte Avenue Art Walk. AFTER DARK IN THE PARK brought the studio to the streets, the music to the masses, and the kitchen to the courtyard.
FREE and open to the public, AFTER DARK IN THE PARK combined the arts presenting and culinary specializations of St. John’s Institute; the entertainment, hospitality and production prowess of the Strathcona Lecture and Social Society, and the charm and historic significance of Whyte Avenue’s Art Walk, coordinated by The Paint Spot’s Kim Fjordbotten.
