Virtual Art Walk

We are almost ready to go live on the Keweenaw Peninsula with the Keweenaw Interactive Art Walk. If you can’t make it to our small corner of the world, we’ve prepared a virtual event for you! Go to Art Walk for evolving details. The 2023 KIAW is now over, but we will post featured Artists & Writers from 2023 until the end of the year. The KIAW will return on the last Saturday in September 2024. Let us know if you participate in the comments here! Thank you to all the writers at Carrot Ranch who participated in making this interactive art walk a global collaboration! How cool is that!


  1. So cool! And neat to see there are a few of us featured from PA! Thanks for helping put this together and allowing me to participate, Charli!โค๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰

    • Charli Mills says:

      PA showed up and the participants noticed! Several made positive comments, and found it fascinating to see where featured writers were from. Thank you for participating!

  2. I’ll try and follow along from my British Columbia perch…

    • Charli Mills says:

      We,,, Bill, I made the videos but a lack of cell serivec and internet in the dark corners of Rabbit Bay prevented posting. I’ve decided to use them for the next prompt. It was a great day! I’m still grinning!

  3. Charli and Tammy,
    What a wonderful event. Thank you so much for putting the paintings and stories on line so we could all share in the beauty of creativity. It didn’t make up for experiencing it in real time and life but it ws darn close. Thank you again. I will definitely share this with my local writing groups.
    What a difference you have made in my life. Love, love, love

    • Charli Mills says:

      Thank you, Sue! In person, the event took my breath away. It was me, Tammy and her next-door-neighbor who set it up on the path Tammy built. She and her neighbor worked all week hanging rope, placing potted flowers…so many physical as well as technological details to pull this off but the effort was worth it. I felt you were all there in those moments when all you could hear was the lake waves and popple leaves while people read your stories, then looked at art, deep, deep in thought. People slowed down in a way people don’t any more, and it made all of you feel so near because there was genuine connection going on through the paintings, nature, and literary art. <3

  4. Happy to be a far flung part of this…

  5. Anticipating… And, thank YOU for the glimpses of Lake Superior! I am way down here near Lake Erie… so it is wonderful to join the two regions via blogsphere!

    • Charli Mills says:

      We are connected through our literary art and Great Lakes, Annette! I’ll be posting the videos for the Tuesday challenge, and in some, I think you can hear the waves! Give my regards to Lake Erie.

  6. I can’t wait to see Lake Superior!! Thanks again for sharing the stories and the art. My heart is full. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

    • Charli Mills says:

      You will feel enveloped, Colleen! My heart is so full, too. And TOJ showed me this awesome photo she took of a campfire on her beach with the sunset. She’s “whipping up” an oil painting of it for the Tales Around the Campfire cover! She knows our timeline, too.

    How busy you’ve all been, Charli! So many thoughts and ideas.

    • Charli Mills says:

      It’s been three years in the making and we started planning last year and were pretty chill until June when it began to feel more like a reality. so many thoughts and ideas in my head too!

  8. I trust that the day has gone well. So impressed…from afar…

  9. Very cool. You did it! You and Toj did it! You and Toj and the Ranchers and the community did it!

  10. The ArtWalk was fun There were some interesting stuff Thanks ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™ƒ

  11. Chel Owens says:

    These are so cool!!! I loved reading through the pairings.

  12. Really impressive. The stories paired with the art. Well done to all. Now, I’m kicking myself for being such a slacker.

  13. This is so cool!

  14. Norah says:

    Loved the tour, Charli. Those autumn trees are magnificent. We don’t have them here.

    • Charli Mills says:

      Norah, one of my students wrote an intriguing research paper about the colors of transitioning leaves. But you have koala bears and unique spiders.

      • Norah says:

        That’s right, Charli. There is much diversity in the world. That is a good thing. There is room for us all. If only we’d accept each other. ๐Ÿ’–
