The 11th annual ArtWalk at Liberty Station will be held Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14 at Ingram Plaza, 2645 Historic Decatur Road (corner of Historic Decatur and Roosevelt Road). The fine art festival will run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on August 13 and 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on August 14 and attendance is free.  It will be a weekend full of art, food, live entertainment and fun for residents and visitors of all ages.

ArtWalk at Liberty Station will feature the works of over 200 artists from around the globe. The art on display will showcase every medium from painting, sculpture and glass work to fine jewelry and photography. Attendees will also be able to enjoy live music, KidsWalk which offers interactive art for kids, delicious street food options and a wine and beer pavilion in a beautiful al fresco setting.

New to the festival this year are multiple interactive art exhibitions that attendees can participate in. Local San Diego artist, Nan Coffey, will be painting live during the event—creating an exclusive ArtWalk at Liberty Station mural. Attendees will have the opportunity to become a part of Coffey’s “Inclusion Art” by sharing their stories with her and being incorporated in to the artwork she creates.

Making its first appearance at ArtWalk at Liberty Station, will be The Butterfly Effect—an interactive element where four painted butterflies will be hidden throughout the venue to give attendees the opportunity to find them and winners will be able to select a charity of their choice to receive a donation.
