Raw Space: Downtown Art Walk is set for 5-8 p.m. Friday, May 13, on Water Street in Augusta.

The Art Walk, a collaboration with the University of Maine Augusta, and sponsored by the Maine State Credit Union, the Augusta Downtown Alliance, utilizes art to celebrate the community of Downtown Augusta by unleashing the untapped potential of pure urban rawness that lies within many empty spaces available for development along Water Street.
