October 2020

Some long awaited news:

Urban Art Network is pleased to announce that beginning First Thursday October 1st from 4pm-8pm, we will join the Pearl District Business Association's Healthy Streets Permit. Alongside local Pearl District restaurants and businesses we will have spaces for up to 10 UAN artists to display and sell within the PDBA street closure on NW 13th ave on Thursdays every week. The street closure set up will follow guidance provided by Public Health Department for the safest operating procedures during this public health crisis.

We are excited to offer this opportunity to Urban Art Network artists who wish to participate in 2020. This is a no cost opportunity. Preference will be given to artists who had pre-paid for 2020 season. There will be 5 separate weekly opportunities this autumn, and we hope to be able to include all artists interested in participating.

If you would like to display your work within the street closure this summer please send an email including a high resolution image of your current work and your contact information HERE.

In other great news:

The First Thursday Street Gallery is going Virtual! We are at work on an online art walk and would like participating artists to feature:

  • A link to an introduction video of artworks for sale, and perhaps the artist.
  • A link to the artist's UAN profile with more information and the artwork for sale.

And a link to the artist's email and social media platforms.

Please reach out with ideas, comments, or feedback HERE. If you would like to participate, please have a completed profile on the site including current email address and contact information.

This free event is a part of our commitment to our growing online presence designed to better serve Urban Art Network members with improved virtual opportunities.
