With many art shows and in-person events being cancelled for most of 2020, ArtWalk celebrates the return of in-person art events and continues to serve as a symbol of hope for the art community. Attendees can peruse through the garden browsing artwork and enjoying food, wine and beer, and live entertainment at the two-day, free event.
The fine art exhibition will take place in the heart of Liberty Station at Ingram Plaza among 100,000 square feet of park-like space, with its towering American Flag surrounded by a rose garden and large spaces of grass and trees. Locals and visitors will have the opportunity to purchase artwork from local, national, and international artists in a variety of mediums.
“We are thrilled to see events beginning to resume in San Diego and ArtWalk is the perfect way to celebrate this return and bring some much-needed color and art into people’s lives,” said Curt Brooker, Director of ArtWalk San Diego. “As we ring in our 16th year, ArtWalk @ Liberty Station will showcase our most diverse range of artists from across all mediums of art, traveling from the US, Mexico and beyond.”
Every medium of art will be on display including painting, sculpture, glasswork, fine jewelry, photography, and more. The Liberty Station venue also gives attendees an opportunity to visit a wide array of galleries and working artist studios. Attendees can spend the day exploring art of all kinds at this event.
In addition to the artwork, guests will also be able to enjoy live entertainment from local bands and musicians including Evan Diamond, Robin Henkel, Marissa Grace, Astra Kelly, and many more. Attendees will also be able to enjoy a hosted beer and wine garden, as well as sweet and savory bites from a variety of eateries including Bamboo Hut, Bread & Cheese, Dang Brother Pizza, Mariposa Ice Cream, Maui Wowi, Sabor Piri Piri, and Tacos Jalisco.
