To be successful in your professional life, you need to be a multitasker, someone who can juggle many duties at once with aplomb. In your personal life, sometimes the same theory holds true — especially when you're trying to plan something to do with your friends on Friday night. May we recommend Grand Center's annual spring Art Walk, happening from 4 to 8 p.m.? With exhibitions at more than fifteen venues, including the Moto Museum (3441 Olive Street), Schmidt Contemporary Art (615 North Grand Boulevard), the Sheldon Art Galleries (3648 Washington Boulevard) and the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts (3716 Washington Boulevard), the range of art shown and the number of pieces presented will practically ensure that there will be something to suit everyone's taste (there will even be motorcycles!). And while you're walking from venue to venue, planning what to see next and counting your gallery passport stamps (which are redeemable for discounts at various Grand Center eateries), street performers will entertain you with music, stilt walking and more. The artsy evening culminates in a big outdoor screening of artist Julian Schnabel's Basquiat, a biopic about the late graffiti artist/painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, happening at 8:30 p.m. in the courtyard of the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts. Admission to all Art Walk venues and events is free, as is the hop-on-hop-off shuttle, if some in your party choose not to walk. To learn more, visit www.grandcenter.org.
