PHOENIX —  The 18th annual Regional Unity Walk is going to look a bit different this year.

Instead of taking place at Tempe Town Lake, the event celebrating diversity will be spread out across the East Valley due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Chandler, Gilbert, Guadalupe, Mesa, Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale will make a list of places to visit from Jan. 5 to 31 as part of the “Unity ‘Art’ Walk: A Visual Journey of Diversity, Culture and Equity.”

Lists will include attractions like murals, photos, performances and sculptures with an online map to the destinations that offer information about each piece and artist.

The link to view the map will be available in January.

A list will also be compiled by each city participating in the ArtWalk highlighting local restaurants with carryout services available that are owned by people of color.

The majority of the art will be outdoors, according to the official website, allowing people to remain safe while enjoying the activity.

We want to hear from you.
