WHAT: 4th Thursday Art Walk
WHERE: Carlsbad Village (map)
WHEN: Thursday, March 24, 5pm–8
Carlsbad Village Art Walk will take place on the fourth Thursday of every month, beginning March 24th from 5pm to 8pm in collaboration with Cruising the Art Scene held at the Village Faire Shopping Center. This self-guided tour will introduce you to the wonderful stores, galleries, and even restaurants throughout the village that feature art by local and regional artists.
The evening will include original art in Carlsbad Village’s permanent galleries as well as village merchants acting as temporary “phantom” galleries. Several locations, including the Village Faire Shops, will also feature live music.
Participating merchants will feature artwork ranging from sculpture to oil painting to photography to mixed media, and everything in between. With brochure in hand you can stroll the village and visit as many or as few locations as you’d like, enjoy meeting the artists, learning about their talent and even watching art demos. Participating merchants will also be offering light snacks and refreshments as well.
To help with the self-guided tour, brochures will be available throughout the village at participating locations, the Visitor’s Center, and hotels complete with an easy-to-follow map identifying each Art Walk location and where music or demos will be taking place. The brochure will also indicate what type of art each participating location will be featuring (photography, sculpture, mixed media, etc.) to better help you customize your walk.
While strolling the streets, you can also take a visual journey of the Village’s rich culture and artistic talent through the lens of nearly a dozen murals adorning numerous buildings. From large playful pieces seen from the center of the Village to hidden works adorning alley walls, read about the tales behind the art, including the people, places and artists themselves, in the self-guided tour brochure.
