A few hardy venues are still open for the Friday Arts Walk so BUNDLE-UP Duluth!

👉Duluth Fine Pianos (331 W Superior Street) www.DuluthFinePianos.com
Our monthly event, Jazz @ DFP, will continue as planned.  JAZZ@DFP returns on Friday, January 25th, from 5:30-7:30, with Tim Stratioti on trombone, Matt Mobley on bass, and Ryan Frane at the Yamaha S5X, heating up the house! Esther Piszczek provides the visuals, DFP provides the edibles, and admission is still free! Come check it out!

We’re still figuring out how this monthly event works throughout our dramatically changing seasons. Frigid temperatures and wind chills predicted for THIS Friday January 25, 2019, means many of our venues will not be open for this month’s Arts Walk.
