The Fourth Annual Pico Boulevard Art Walk and Vintage Auto Show featuring live music, glass-blowing, ceramics, costumes, frame-making, poetry, photography, wood carving, sculpture and jewelry making, will be held in Santa Monica Saturday, October 17th.
Sponsored by the City of Santa Monica, the event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Virginia Avenue Park, 2601 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.
Food will be supplied by a variety of local restaurants, offering a “Taste of Pico.”
The event will incorporate various businesses along the three-mile stretch of Pico Boulevard from Centinela Avenue to the ocean. Among the festivities are children’s art activities and music performances, including a grand finale by recording artist Jordan Johnson.
Art galleries and studios, some of which are usually closed to the public, plan to open their doors to showcase artworks and demonstrate creative art techniques. One of the works on exhibit at the Art Walk is “A Night View Collaboration” by photographer Helen K. Garber and graffiti artist DuceOneX.
The 40-foot piece is a collaboration of Garber’s “A Night View of Los Angeles,” a 360-degree panorama of Los Angeles as seen from the helipad of the US Bank Tower in downtown, and graffiti artists’ interpretation of the landmarks pictured. The piece will be displayed on a fence along Pico during the Art Walk.
The vintage auto show in the SGI parking lot features a variety of classic cars.
Two double-decker Starline Tour buses will be available to take guests up and down Pico to various points of interest.
