Celebrate the Coming of Spring with a Birdhouse
Created by Jerome Art Walk Members
Do you love birds? How about art? On Saturday, April 26th, Jerome Art Walk hosts an event that merges the two. Fifty artists will create birdhouses, most from the same basic kit, each with its own theme and personality. The masterpieces will be sold at Spook Hall in Jerome from 10am to 5pm. Proceeds for the sale have been earmarked for promoting the art scene in Jerome and raising awareness of the gifts of the Verde River. The price will be $55 for most birdhouses with a few special custom designs selling for more. The sale coincides with the Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival in Cottonwood on April 24-27. This event at Dead Horse Ranch State Park raises the profile of the Verde River and its rich ecosystem. Last years event recorded the sighting of 198 species of birds. A portion of the proceeds from the birdhouse event will be donated to the Festival. Jerome Art Walk is the first Saturday of every month from 5 to 8pm. The small mountain community boasts 25 galleries and studios and has been a unified group for 8 years. With the support of local merchants, The Town of Jerome and The Historical Society, this well-known event has become one of the highlights of the calendar of events.
