This August long weekend New Westminster’s streets are crawling with the culturally curious during the 15th Annual New Westminster Cultural Crawl. During the crawl, unique and artsy venues around the city feature the work of resident artists. During the month of August, the Van Dop Gallery presents the New West7 – a group of artists who live and work in the City OF New Westminster.
