Here are the Art Walk Campaign Components:
The BIG ONE = Every May for the past 19 years, the Greenwood Arts Council has produced an annual art walk with fantastic results. Many businesses who sell art say, it’s one of their best sales weekends of the year! The Arts Council goes to great lengths to advertise online and in Seattle newspapers. Each participating venue sees extra traffic and many are visitors from other neighborhoods and beyond. http://www.phinneycenter.org/artwalk/index.shtml
MAP = up to 10,000 folded card stock maps are printed and distributed each year with YOUR website URL on it. That equals a lot of extra traffic visiting you in person and online.
ADVERTISING = In 2014, the Greenwood Arts Council will run 4 ads, one each quarter in the A&P, the Arts & Performance quarterly newspaper produced by The Stranger, to promote our Art Up & Chow Down event every 2nd Friday of the month. http://seattleaandp.com/index.html
WEB SITE = http://artupphinneywood.com/
This site is managed by volunteers and is a benefit to every paying member of our program. This site is getting thousands of hits each month as seen on our Google stats! All you have to do is SUBMIT your art show information or art walk specials by the 1st of each month, include a photo, and it too will appear! <firstname.lastname@example.org>
POSTERS = Hundreds of posters are printed every year in support of our Art Walk, which include the 12 dates for that year: they go up in participating and supporting businesses all over the area.
A-BOARDS = 7 solid wood A-boards go up each week of art walk around the neighborhood with our new ArtUp & Chow Down logo. They have map holders, for additional distribution of art walk maps.
