Art Walk at the Green Tent - February 17 2019

This Sunday, February 17, you can get a preview of the upcoming Mar Vista Art Walk at the Green Tent!

Created as a means of improving the walkability of our neighborhood, The Mar Vista Art Walk is a fun, FREE celebration of all the arts.  

The quarterly Mar Vista Art Walk events encourage people to get out of their cars and enjoy local art along the 1-mile stretch of Venice Blvd, between Beethoven Street and Inglewood Boulevard. Visitors experience live art and local music, and support locally owned restaurants, galleries, and shops.
The theme for the March 7 Art Walk is Roots! We're celebrating the immigrant communities (most of us!) and the indigenous communities that call Los Angeles home.
Come to the Green Tent, located in the center of the Mar Vista Farmer's Market, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Sunday and find out more about the Art Walk, opportunities to volunteer and what you can expect when you join the fun. And while you are there, check out Mar Vista's new street mural and buy some delicious organic produce or ready made meals.
The Mar Vista Art Walk is a joint effort of environmental nonprofit Green Communications Initiative (GCI) and the community of local artists, with the enthusiastic support of CD-11 councilmember Mike Bonin, the Mar Vista Neighborhood Council, Mayor Eric Garcetti’s “Great Streets” Initiative, the Department of Cultural Affairs, Michelle Pine Rappoport-KW Realty, KW Realty-Silicon Beach, RSI, Earthstar Creation Center and the M & R Vest Foundation.
