bay with ArtWalk Fifth annual art festival takes over Bayfront park for the weekend

For the fifth year in a row,

ArtWalk on the Bay will feature over 3,000 pieces of original art, covering every genre, from oil to photography to jewelry to sculpture to digital and beyond. On Sept. 10 and 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1 Park Blvd., this free event allows local artists to come out and show their work, talk to people and share with other artists. The two-day art and culture festival is different in many ways from its sister event, Mission Federal ArtWalk, which takes place every April in Little Italy.

director for ArtWalk San Diego said that though the event is not ticketed, they have estimated an attendance of 38,000 to 40,000 people in previous years, and only see the event growing as time goes on. Ben Horne, a landscape photographer who has been par- ticipating in both ArtWalk events for the past three years, said that the size of the smaller fall event makes it very appealing. “I enjoy the smaller venue of

ArtWalk on the Bay because it is easier for people to see the entire event,” said Horne. “The layout encourages attendees to visit each and every artist.”

The event is the perfect venue

for artists to showcase new work, and for spectators to view and purchase, new, original, one-of-a- kind pieces. Horne describes his pieces

as being large format landscape photographs, focusing on the lines, textures, patterns and vivid colors of California, Utah and Arizona. With his main inspira- tion coming from nature, Horne plans to go backpacking with all of his equipment to get a new perspective, because as he put it, “it is humbling to spend time away from civilization on a solo
