It’s going to be one colorful weekend at Liberty Station: the 12th annual ArtWalk is back, showcasing fine art – from paintings and sculptures to photography and glass work – in America’s Finest City.
The free event goes down this Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., respectively, at Liberty Station’s Ingram Plaza located at 2751 Dewey Rd.
Organizers say more than 200 international, national and local artists will display their work and, in addition to the broad spectrum of art, the event will feature street food, live music, and activities for all, including an interactive KidsWalk art zone for the little ones.
This year, at an activity area hosted by Artist & Craftsman Supply, attendees will be able to create their own mixed media project using watercolor paper, sprays, and stencils, which they can take home as a keepsake.
The event will also boast a beer and wine pavilion; proceeds from the pavilion will benefit ArtReach, a nonprofit organization that provides free art classes to students who wouldn’t normally have access to art programs in San Diego County.
The ArtWalk aims to be an accessible place to learn about art – in its many forms – and buy pieces, whether you’re a seasoned collector or a first-time fine art buyer. It’s the sister event of the Mission Federal ArtWalk that comes to Little Italy each April, produced by the same team.
