Fullerton’s Art Walk Celebrates 4 Years
Friday, MARCH 7 is the big annual Art Walk anniversary event taking place at the Fullerton Museum Plaza. Fullerton Art venues come together this one night to celebrate local life and art!
Fullerton has been voted one of the top 3 best downtown areas in Orange County, and understandably so! With new boutiques, restaurants, bars, galleries and artist dens popping up around every corner, this small downtown area has become one of the best artistic communities in Orange County. Over the past few years, Fullerton has gotten a lot of praise for it’s activism against the Kelly Thomas murder, Steve Baxter’s Art with An Agenda organization and art shows, and for the awesome little creative community of musicians and artists that hover around the Magoski Colony with dedicated perseverance. Santa Ana’s got nothin on Fullerton in this day and age. If there’s one thing that this town has–it’s passion. Staples in the art community like Brian Prince, Steve Baxter and Jesse La Tour have helped this art walk become what it is today, and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down at all. People are running to Fullerton to participate in the great community vibe, and to see some non-judgmental, inventive, inspiring art. Hope you will too!
On Friday, March 7, 2014 from 6-10pm, the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk invites the public to its four-year anniversary all across the city. At the Fullerton Museum Plaza there will be a celebration spotlighting the blossoming Fullerton art community. The monthly Art Walk is a multi-venue art crawl guiding visitors throughout the downtown area, but for this momentous four-year anniversary there will be a central location in partnership with the Fullerton Museum Center Association. Highlights such as live stage dance and music, interactive art and theater, live art demonstrations, a beer and wine garden and a gourmet food truck round-up will enhance everyone’s overall art walk experience.
Most venues will be gathered at the Museum Plaza for this one-night art extravaganza! Expected to return this year to join the festivities are other Fullerton arts organizations such as The Muckenthaler Cultural Center, Fullerton College Art Department, The Fox Theater, All the Arts for All the Kids Foundation and various others. On the main stage, there will be live music by:
Across the way, there will be new exhibitions opening at The Hibbleton Gallery, Neighborhood Gallery (formerly PAS), Bookmachine, Violethour, Monkwood, Altered States, Carpe Diem Experience, West and Duff Galleries, The Night Owl and The Internal Gallery. Steve Baxter’s The Egan Gallery, part of the Magoski Art Colony on Santa Fe Ave., will be opening a new exhibit entitled “War of the Gargantuas,” featuring artwork by Ken Ruzic, Big Toe and Doug Horn.
The anniversary made it on Where Magazine’s list as one of the Best Orange County Things To Do for March! We agree: #awesome #fullertonartwalk.
