Event: ArtWalk at NTC Liberty Station

art_walkFormerly ArtWalk on the Bay, ArtWalk San Diego @NTC Liberty Station (shortened to ArtWalk @NTC) builds upon the success of the past 7 years at San Diego’s Bayfront. This 8th annual event takes place in San Diego’s flagship arts and culture district, NTC @ Liberty Station,  once San Diego’s Naval Training Center, and now a mecca for artist studios, galleries, museums and performing arts groups.

This fine art festival is part of the ArtWalk San Diego brand known for bringing together all facets of the arts in San Diego while promoting the experience of owning original art.

This August, ArtWalk @NTC is set to draw more than 100 artists, a dozen musical  performers, gourmet food and interactive kids’ activities at KidsWalk. The new destination for the festival is complemented by an array of dining options at this scenic venue.

Attendees will be able to experience art “alfresco.” ArtWalk @NTC brings fine art outside under San Diego’s sunny skies to create the perfect viewing art under natural light and purchase artwork directly from the finest artists in the region. Attendees get to meet with artists and hear what inspires them about their work. Whether you are a seasoned collector, a family on vacation or are simply ready to be inspired, come to ArtWalk @NTC to discover the art that has been waiting for you.
