Mar Vista Art Walk, February 19

Sun is predicted for Sunday!

Stop by the Green Tent and learn about the upcoming Mar Vista Art Walk: First Thursday, March 2, 2017, 6-10 p.m.

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 1-mile stretch of Venice Blvd between Inglewood Bl – Beethoven St. will be transformed by the theme, VOICES.  Originally inspired by the relationship between poetry/spoken word and music (60s folk rock, hip hop and lyric-heavy indie), given the challenging tone of our times, the theme has naturally expanded to allow everyone to come share their VOICE with peace, love and positivity.

There'll be interactive poetry/spoken word stations, four live music stages, live painting, art installations, experimental video and a Silent Auction to benefit the community. 

The Mar Vista Art Walk is a joint effort of environmental nonprofit Green Communications Initiative (GCI) and the community of local artists curated by Mitchelito Orquiola, 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 Arts Activation Fund, Community Partners, Michelle Pine Rappoport-KW Realty, KW Realty-Silicon Beach, Earthstar Creation Center and the M & R Vest Foundation, Gravlax Restaurant and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
