Learn About the Mar Vista Art Walk at the Green Tent on May 29th

Created as a means of improving the walkability of our neighborhood, The Mar Vista ArtWalk is a fun, FREE celebration of all the arts.  More walking = fewer cars + less greenhouse gas + better health! 

Designated one of Mayor Garcetti’s “Great Streets”, the latest  Venice Boulevard Mar Vista Art Walk will take the meaning of “street art” to a new level, hosting the kickoff event for a new attraction - the Mar Vista Walls – activating an entire block of street art with a series of new murals simultaneously painted by recognized street artists.

What makes this art walk unique is its emphasis on sidewalk engagement. Instead of indoor gallery hopping bound by 4 walls, visitors interact with artists everywhere -- on sidewalks, in alley parking lots and everywhere between. 

Food (vegan options), indie bands, live street painting, film, art installations, emerging and established artists, dance and experimental video.

This event is made possible in part by grants from the Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with Community Partners and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Special thanks to our sponsors Martian Ranch & Vineyard, Michelle Pine Rappoport KW Realty, Pamela Day Enterprises and organizers Green Communications Initiative, the enthusiastic support of Councilmember Mike Bonin and the Mar Vista Community Council.
