Downtown Portland throws open their shutters after a long winter for this month's First Friday Art Walk. Never been? Here's the lowdown from their Fan Page:

"On the first Friday of every month, the city’s artists, galleries, and venues open up their doors for Portland’s thriving art scene.

Portland's First Friday Art Walk is the state of Maine's largest free monthly cultural event. Every month, rain, snow, sleet, or shine, the galleries, museums, alternative venues, and streets of downtown Portland celebrate the creative culture that makes us one of the best small cities in the country. Creative Portland, the city's local arts agency, stewards the art walk through the gathering and publication of the listings, and the promotion of the arts community."

See you Friday for the Art Walk!
