The next Downtown Hollywood Artwalk will take place on Saturday, August 16th, 2014 from 7-10pm. During this monthly event, participating Downtown Hollywood art galleries and shops stay open late, offering complimentary drinks and appetizers while hosting artwork from an array of artists who display their work on-site for the night’s special event. Don’t be surprised to hear the sounds of a harp, a harmonica or a trio of ukuleles as live music on street corners complement the event, adding magical sounds to the eclectic scene.
During last month’s ArtWalk, ArtCenter 2020, located on Harrison Street, featured artist Daniel Pontet, who, by popular demand, has become an ArtWalk staple. Pontet entertained the on-looking crowd with his impulse art, a fusion of music and painting, accompanied by the rhythmic beats of performers from Hollywood’s own Resurrection Drums. The dynamic team will excite on-lookers again with fresh work on Saturday, August 16th.
This month’s upcoming Downtown Hollywood ArtWalk features many exciting artists including Victor- Hugo Vaca II, showing at the Cinema Paradiso Theater on Hollywood Boulevard. Victor- Hugo Vaca II will be present and will be available to answer any questions about his art. Internationally acclaimed artist Jose Rementeria will be featured at the ArtsPark Gallery in Young Circle. Rementeria is best known for his work “Human Beans,” traveling around the globe as part of the Coexistence Collection by the Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem. The artist will be present to discuss and show his new work.
Gallery 2014 will feature “Nature in Another Perspective” by Mago’z. Several artists will be painting live in the gallery during Artwalk for visitors to watch. “The Downtown Hollywood monthly Artwalk provides another opportunity for the community to visit the Downtown Hollywood businesses, meet working artists and purchase affordable artwork. This event has a great vibe and pulls in a nice crowd including art lovers, locals and visitors who enjoy a night out,” comments Lisa Liotta, Redevelopment & Operations Manager for the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA).
The event continues to grow and is complemented by The Downtown Hollywood Mural Project, another Hollywood CRA place-making initiative, where contemporary outdoor murals are painted at key locations in Downtown Hollywood in an effort to enhance and enrich the existing cultural fabric of the Downtown Hollywood community, thereby attracting more art related activities, businesses and events. During the monthly ArtWalk, mural artists can often be seen painting their murals live. This is a very cool enhancement that has been noted throughout the South Florida arts community.
