DVI Updates 

Our 150th Art Walk was a Success!
Thank you to everyone who came out to our 150 Bold – Big John’s Apricot Wheat Release Party at #ArtWalkJax last week! From Hemming Park down to the Front Porch at The Landing and everywhere in between, the streets of #DTJax were packed. We can’t wait to see you for our next Art Walk on July 6!
