18th Annual Westville Artwalk Reception May 06 2015

In having our pop-up shop in the Westville neighborhood of New Haven I've come to know the creative community involved here. Set off the path of the hustle of downtown is a group of people + businesses that have built their own district rooted in the arts. One of the largest public examples of that is the annual Westville Artwalkβ€”a 2 day event full of art openings, outdoor artist tents, a fashion show, film screenings, and more. (Here's an article covering last year's event.)

Our pop-up shop is nestled as part of the downtown village where most of the events are taking place. Having opened 2 weeks ago, the Artwalk allows Strange Ways the opportunity to have an official reception for the visitors and residents of New Haven. As part of the Friday night festivities, we'll be hosting an open house from 6–9PM with food, drinks and deals! We're also open our usual 12–6PM hours that day.

Open House Reception
910 Whalley Ave, New Haven CT
Join us 6–9PM on Friday 5/8

I also feel like I should point out something new to the Artwalkβ€”a Friday Night Beer Garden! Located just a block down from our shop will be an outdoor event to taste local brews, and also grub down on food trucks. I believe you'll get prime viewing of the fashion show being held on Central Ave, too. Honestly, I'm a little sad I will be working! The event runs 7–9PM, so I suggest you stop on by Strange Ways and then head on over. Here is the full schedule of events for Friday night and Saturday day.
