April First Friday | Urban Arts Trail Celebration


Each year, the SouthSide Arts District works tirelessly to create opportunities for local artists to transform our streetscape into their canvas. Over the last four years the SouthSide Arts District has added the following works to Third and Fourth Streets:

Artistic Designed Flower Pots
Downtown Murals
Artistic Designed Bike Racks
Public Piano

All these pieces of public art make up a 2.75 mile path throughout our Downtown called the Urban Arts Trail. Visitors can go online at to follow the trail at home, or walk the path viewing and learning about each mural, artistic bike rack, sculpture, mosaic and our brand-new Public Piano. At April’s First Friday celebration, we will cut the ribbon and officially welcome two new murals to the path – “Rebuilding and Remembering” by Devyn Eleanor Briggs and “Diversity” by Maltas Con Leche to the Hispanic Center Lehigh Valley’s courtyard. Visitors are welcome to join us at the Hispanic Center on April 2ndat 6:30pm to hear the story about each piece, followed by a small guided tour of the Urban Arts Trail. Please remember to bring a nonperishable food item for the Hispanic Center’s food pantry to help our community of South Bethlehem.
