The future of ArtWalk hangs in the balance


It’s been just over two months since I reported on the tenuous state of ArtWalk due to budget cuts. The final ArtWalk of its kind–100 percent city supported–was one of the best ever and left me feeling optimistic about the event’s future.

As the city has given over at least 1/2 the responsibility of coordinating, promoting and facilitating ArtWalk to the community via the Downtown Ventura Organization, it seems interest in keeping it going is already waning–especially among artists.

Come on people; get involved, make it happen. Here’s an easy way:

Art Party ArtWalk Fundraiser
Red Brick Gallery
, 315 E. Main St., Ventura. 643-6400.
July 18, 7-10 p.m.

Art, live music, eats by Watermark, 71 Palm, Savory Cafe, Cafe Fiore and more.
