The intent of Art Walk is to provide an opportunity to develop a partnership between local businesses and their customers, visitors, and Merritt and the Nicola Valley’s creative community. This is was an opportunity for individual artists and artist associations to market and promote themselves in highly visible venues. The event ran from July 1st to 31st, 2013. There were 21 artists matched with 20 businesses in Merritt.
