Tonight is the night of one of Hong Kong’s only annual art events, Artwalk, and I can’t wait.
“Now in its eighth year, ArtWalk is Hong Kong’s biggest charity art event. The ArtWalk benefiting charity for 2008 is, as last year, the Society for Community Organisation (SOCO) – who received a donation of HK$539,000 (approx $69,000 USD) raised from tickets sold from ArtWalk 2007.”
This year, 55 galleries (an increase from last year’s 50 and 41 in 2006) will open their doors between 5 pm to 12 midnight tonight for participants to view an array of art in galleries in the SOHO, Wan Chai, Sheung Wan, Central, Aberdeen, Causeway Bay, Tai Koo Shing and Happy Valley areas of Hong Kong Island.
A great way to check out local and some international art, as well as enjoy great food and wine from the nearby restaurants of Hong Kong’s SOHO, all in all a fun night!
