The theme of the free event this year is “Connecting Creative Communities.” It captures ArtWalk’s mission to bring San Diego together to enjoy art and cultural expression. In addition to thousands of works of art, attendees can also expect food, wine and beer, live entertainment and interactive art projects.
“ArtWalk at Liberty Station returns to the heart of Liberty Station’s Arts District to celebrate San Diego’s local artistic talent as well as national and international artists,” said Sandi Cottrell, ArtWalk San Diego director. “It’s important to bring the community together to appreciate art, while offering artists a platform to share their passion.”
Cottrell said attendees can experience the feeling of buying original pieces of art, as well as creating art through interactive experiences to connect with their inner artist in a variety of fun artsy activities.”
Artwork from more than 200 international, national and local San Diego artists will surround the picturesque Ingram Plaza rose garden, where attendees can view and purchase every medium of art including painting, sculpture, glass work, fine jewelry, photography and more.
The festival will also include: live music; KidsWalk, an interactive art area for families; street food options and a wine and beer pavilion benefitting ArtReach, a nonprofit that has provided free art classes to more than 20,000 underpriviliged students.
The fine art festival will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 11, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 12.
