ArtWalk NTC @ Liberty Station Celebrates 10 Years This August 15-16

July 17, 2015

The 10th annual ArtWalk NTC @ Liberty Station takes over Point Loma on Saturday, August 15 to Sunday, August 16 for a weekend full of art, food, live entertainment and fun for residents and visitors of all ages. This yearly art festival is produced by the same team that brings Mission Federal ArtWalk to San Diego’s Little Italy each year in April.

“ArtWalk NTC is about bringing together all facets of art for a free public event and we are excited to be celebrating 10 years of doing just that,” said Sandi Cottrell, ArtWalk San Diego’s Managing Director. “Last year’s ArtWalk NTC @ Liberty Station was such a success, we are looking forward to this tenth anniversary at Liberty Station’s Ingram Plaza, which provides such beautiful and open spaces that really allows artists to showcase their art. Artists and attendees alike love the park-like setting, the free parking and being surrounded by San Diego’s flagship arts and culture district.”

This year’s ArtWalk NTC will have the most artists ever, giving attendees the opportunity to purchase artwork from more than 200 local, regional and international artists. The art displayed will cover nearly every medium, from oil painting and sculpture, to photography and jewelry. Inocente, subject of the 2012 Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Short Subject, Inocente, will put on her first show in San Diego since the documentary was released at this years ArtWalk NTC (click here to view the trailer).

“We are thrilled that Inocente chose ArtWalk to showcase the new art she has been working on,” said Cottrell. “Her message perfectly aligns with one of our core values, which is to make art education available to all kids through ArtReach—Inocente’s moving story illustrates art’s value for young people.”

Attendees will also be able to enjoy live music, interactive art for adults and kids, delicious street food options and a wine and beer pavilion with wine from Francis Ford Coppola’s Diamond Collection and beer from Stone Brewing in a beautiful al fresco setting. The interactive activity where participants will get the chance to work on a collaborative mural, will be presented by FARM Creative Market & Art School, a new art school located in NTC at Liberty Station. Performers for this year include Marissa Grace, Steven Ybarra, Teagan Taylor Band, Vanja James & Ed Kornhauser, Bart Mendoza, G. Burns Jug Band, Robin Henkel, Many-Strings, Nina Francis, SABA, Manny Cepeda, Tolan Shaw and LA Edwards.

KidsWalk invites the whole family to participate in fun, family-friendly art activities and a variety of art projects. Activities include a colorful take away project with Alexa’s PLAYC; face painting, caricatures, henna and letter brush painting with Amusement Artists; creating flowers out of recycled materials and collaboration on a painted garden with ArtReach San Diego; drawing and coloring with Monart School of the Arts and an opportunity to learn about native wildlife with Living Coast Discovery Center.

ArtWalk NTC @ Liberty Station will be held at Ingram Plaza, 2645 Historic Decatur Road (corner of Historic Decatur and Roosevelt Road). The art festival will run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on August 15 and 16 and attendance is free.
