Mission Federal ArtWalk will return to San Diego’s Little Italy from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30 to celebrate its 33rd year as San Diego’s premier arts and cultural event and the largest fine art festival in Southern California. The free weekend-long event attracts thousands of visitors each year to San Diego’s Little Italy. Attendees will be able to enjoy over 350 local, national and international artists showcasing every medium, including painting, sculpture, glass work, photography, fine jewelry and more; live music and dance performances; interactive art activities; street food; and family-friendly craft projects at KidsWalk. The 2017 Mission Federal ArtWalk theme is “Vivid Expression.”

“Each year we work closely with our sponsors, vendors, featured artists, entertainment, community and local non-profit organizations to bring an extraordinary art experience to San Diego,” said Sandi Cottrell, director of Mission Federal ArtWalk. “Mission Federal ArtWalk is for everyone—serious collectors, first-time art buyers, families and visitors to San Diego. Each year, one of our goals is to ensure attendees feel like they can be a part of the art. That’s why bringing interactive art activities and kid-friendly projects to the event is so important to us. We encourage attendees to express themselves throughout the weekend and find their inner artist, which exists in all of us.”

New to this year’s event will be the live mural work of famous local muralists Mario Torero and Maxx Moses. Attendees will be able to participate in mural-making alongside these well-known mural masters. The 2017 Mission Federal ArtWalk featured artists include Moni Blom, Franco Forte, Mildred Gil Parada, Matthew Grabelsky, Jason Humphrey, Iris Scott, Ivano Stocco and Michael Summers.
