'Art Walk to Remember' honors local artists, funds Alzheimer's research

"Art Walk to Remember," sponsored by the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce, will be held Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in conjunction with a walk to end Alzheimer's from 8 to 9 a.m.

International artist Ken Turner, who resides in New Ulm, will showcase his work as a tribute to the late David Hickman (1937-2010).

Hickman and Turner co-founded the original New Ulm Art Festival, which was held annually from 2000 through 2007. Hickman was an influential art professor at the University of Houston for 41 years and established UH's master's degree program in art.

The festival will feature works by Turner, Hickman, New Ulm artist and historian Ira Gaines (1902-2005), sculptress Amanda Danning, satirical artist Jose Perez, artist and author Mark Chapman and Katy artist Jerry Moore, as well as area students and other emerging artists.

Art will be displayed at several locations around town, including Turner's studio at his residence and Hickman's former studio and residence across the street from the New Ulm Post Office.

Festival participants will display and sell their original work from outdoor exhibits and porches. Vendors will be set up along the streets and visitors will have access to mediums of every kind including antiques, sculptures, quilts, paintings, photographs and crafts.

The "Art Walk to Remember" will raise funds for a scholarship in Hickman's name, and money will also be raised for Alzheimer's treatment and research.
