By Jennifer Stultz Editor
More than a dozen businesses hosted artists and musicians for the annual Pratt Art and Music Walk held Friday, June 3 downtown.
The Vernon Filley Museum of Art on Jackson Street was a starting or ending point for many who came to enjoy community connections on a beautiful early summer evening. Visitors could attend the opening reception for Kansas landscape and landscape artist Bob Benson, complete with wine and cheese refreshments, and then also enjoy an exhibition of winning artwork by attendees at the whole first Pratt art competition.
Miss Kansas 2021 Taylor Clark was on hand to sign autographs and take photos before moving onto Main Street and beyond, where a wide variety of talent and tunes were showcased.
At Merchant Park, Mark Graber and Nick Squires entertained a flowing crowd with country favorites and other crowd pleasers as children played on the red bricks and adults sought shade to place their chairs of garden.
A barbecue truck, cookie vendor and mobile ice cream van brought food and flavor to the event enjoyed by many.
Local 4-H club members were selling membership tickets to the Pratt County Fair, the next community event coming soon to the Pratt area.
