Penn Ave’s First “First Friday” of 2021, January 7th

Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn is a monthly art and entertainment crawl organized by the Penn Avenue Arts Initiative and sponsored by The Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation. This month’s #Unblurred is brought to you by Green Mountain Energy! Bringing you Arts on the Ave since 1998!
Each month, people from all over the region stroll Penn Avenue between the 4800 and 5500 blocks to meet with artists and local business owners. Visitors can expect to see everyone and everything. Families, singles, workers, students, long-time residents and first-time visitors alike can bask in Penn Avenue’s creative energy – experiencing a mix of photography, dance, painting, sculpture, music and spoken word performances.
