Lace up your walking shoes for an art extravaganza in Culver City this weekend. The city’s 2016 Art Walk features gallery exhibitions as well as live music and dance performances, but this year local youth are taking center-stage.

Artwork by students in Culver City’s Academy of Visual and Performing Art is showing in a pop-up installation at 8575 Washington Blvd., and the academy’s modern dance troupe “Danger Zone Dance Co” perform there at 2:15 p.m.

A youth rock band from the non-profit group HOLA (Heart of Los Angeles) performs at Berliner Architects, 5976 Washington Blvd. later in the afternoon.

There’s also a chance for you to express your creative side with chalk art opportunities and family art experiences scattered throughout the Art Walk. You can also explore musical performances from emerging artists in the gardens at Charles Jacobsen and Inner Gardens at 5833 Perry Drive.

Curators Al Quattrocchi and Jeff Smith of Tornado Creative also host an art show in the Helms Design Center, where French-fusion surf rock band Par Avion provides the tunes.
