Annual ArtWalk DB

Second Annual ArtWalk DB to be Held in Discovery Bay
Friday, 6th May, 6-10pm


International Street Art Exhibit Plus Local Artists’ Works on Display
ArtWalk DB 2011 – Hot on the heels of a successful first year, ArtWalk DB is back in 2011 with an exciting showcase of works from local Lantau Island artists plus an international street art exhibit from world-renowned graffiti artists. Held in Discovery Bay and supported by D Deck, the largest oceanfront alfresco dining destination in HK, ArtWalk DB (www.artwalk-db.com) will offer guests a free evening of art, chocolate, wine and more – all to help raise money for a good cause. Open to the public, the non-profit event will take place on Friday, 6th May from 6-10pm. All proceeds will benefit MADaboutART.

ArtWalk DB will feature more than 20 exhibits from an impressive array of local talent including painters, sculptors, photographers, a Korean quilting artist and more. For the first time ever, the event will feature the Chokoli Strawberry Street Art Exhibit featuring art from world-renowned graffiti artists Tilt, Mist, Kongo and Ceet. The international exhibit will be housed in Shop 101, a 4,000-square foot space on 1/F of D Deck, while other exhibits will be on display throughout DB Plaza and in D Deck restaurants.

Upon receiving a map of the event, guests will be encouraged to make a donation to MADaboutART, an organization that helps unite children around the world in understanding and fighting HIV and AIDS through art and education. MADaboutART provides a unique mix of innovative arts-based education and narrative therapy designed to increase children's knowledge of HIV & AIDS, create more open communication and promote self-esteem and self-advocacy. To learn more about MADaboutART, go to http://www.madaboutart.org/.

Last year’s ArtWalk DB raised nearly $15,000 for MADaboutART. “We used the money to fund some really important add-ons to our HIV educational program – including a hero booking workshop for 120 children,” says Liz Brown, MADaboutART Charity Director. “Each child created a book in which they were the hero, allowing them to identify problems in their lives and develop coping strategies to deal with these problems.” ArtWalk DB organizers aim to double the amount raised at the event this year.

ArtWalk DB 2011 is supported by D Deck, the dining hotspot in Discovery Bay, as well as sponsors: Art Futures Group, The Henley Group and Venture Photography. Guests who dine at one of the 13 participating D Deck restaurants and spend over $100 HKD will get a FREE ferry ride home. Restaurants participating in ArtWalk DB include: ZAKS, Hemingway’s, McSorleys, 22 North, Pacific Coffee Company, Caramba, Il Bel Paese, Sopranos, Koh Tomyums, Café Duvet and more.
