Mission Federal ArtWalk 2012

The arts provide communities with entertainment, intellectual and creative appreciation, spiritual and  personal connections, and most importantly a way of self-expression. The 28th Annual Mission Federal ArtWalk on the weekend of Saturday April 28th and Sunday April 29th was indeed a fantastic gathering of the arts. This year over 350 artists and 100,000 visitors attended San Diego’s largest urban arts festival located in downtown’s charming Little Italy. The two day festival included live music, artist booths, food vendors, performances on five stages and an area devoted to children called KidsWalk. EC Galleries, one of the many proud sponsors of Mission Federal ArtWalk, brought the work of their amazing artists to attendees in six consecutive booths found on Fir Street between Kettner Boulevard and India Street.

Exclusive Collections Galleries artists Christopher M., Daniel Ryan, Gloria Lee, Michael Summers, and Michael Flohr made guest appearances at their respective booths and demonstrated their skills for onlookers by creating spectacular new paintings right before their eyes.

KidsWalk was held at Amici Park in Little Italy and brought the exploration of the arts to kids through many fun activities including face-painting, crafts using recyclables, percussion circles and the skill of weaving.

ArtWalk was a place for the whole family, furry members included, to have fun together and revel in the art. These two furry friends met in front of the tent of known Pop Dog Artist Gloria Lee.

If you weren’t able to attend the festivities this year, get ready for a great time next year at the 29th Mission Federal ArtWalk!
