Fairfield’s First Fridays Art Walk is being held today in downtown Fairfield. Art Walk Director Betsy Howland says this month’s art walk has the theme of “Baby its Cold Outside.” All of the galleries in the down town will be open. Howland says some of the galleries will also be holding special activities, including Icon Gallery which will be having their 2010 invitational with artists from Fairfield, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Waterloo, and Davenport. The Art Walk will also be holding a mitten drive. Howland says they are asking everyone to bring an extra pair of mittens or gloves to be donated to the Jefferson County Resource Center to be distributed to kids that need them. Mitten drop locations are the Revelations Bookstore, Icon Gallery, Teeple Hanson Gallery and Flying Leap. The Art Walk runs from 6 to 9:30pm tonight.
