DESCRIPTION

It's a bird!   It's a plane!  It's Art!   Wandering around the historic Santa Monica Airport, you could easily encounter as many original artworks as airplanes.  Douglas Aircraft once built entire fleets of DC3's where artists are now hard at work creating paintings and sculptures that will make your imagination soar.  To showcase this cultural hub and all its assets, the City's Cultural Affairs Division and the Santa Monica Airport will sponsor the second annual Santa Monica Airport Art Walk on March 29th, 2007 from 1:00 - 5:00pm.

Airport Avenue between Bundy Drive and Walgrove Avenue (23rd Street if you are coming from Santa Monica) is home to numerous private artist studios, the Santa Monica Art Studios complex, the Sherry Frumkin and Arena One galleries, the Santa Monica College Ceramic Studios and Art Mentor Program, and the Ruskin Group Theatre.  All of which will be open to visitors during the Art Walk providing a unique opportunity to view the current work of over 60 local artists and explore the spaces where their imaginations take flight.
