CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

On Friday, July 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri invites you to attend a Pokémon Go themed Art Walk.

Come "catch 'em all" with the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri on Friday, July 22 starting at 6 p.m. during an Art Walk in Downtown Cape Girardeau featuring the famous Mississippi River Tales Murals along the floodwall on Water Street and the Cape Girardeau Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit along Broadway Street.

The event will start at the Arts Council (16 N. Spanish Street) with guest Ashley Tong, who will speak about the artistic aspect of the beloved Pokémon phenomenon and its history as a game.

It will be followed by a walk down Water Street discussing the Mississippi River Tales Mural while making Pokéstops and catching Pokémon characters along the way.

Then, we will advance up Broadway Street stopping at the Public Art Sculptures and, once again, making Pokéstops and catching Pokémon characters.
