Description

This FREE event will bring over 75 artists in some 25 locations on two blocks, 6th Street from Market to Howard Streets. The art walk will feature a range of art exhibits and live performances in galleries, bars, restaurants, a laundromat, coffee shops and a number of other storefronts.

New this year will be the premiere of a large-scale lighting art projection on the back of 16-story high 995 Market Street, coupled with the closure of Jessie Street to provide a safe viewing area.

The theme for the projection artwork is 6th Street Superheroes: real local people transformed by professional illustrators into fantastic characters. The illustrators selected for this project will record a full video of their sketches, which will then be edited into a time-lapsed video of the work.

2 Blocks of Art will also bring ‘Sketch the Block’ back for a 2nd year. Co-produced with Sketchpad Gallery, this one-night sketch con hosts artists in the fields of visual concept, comic books, and video games, offering affordable and accessible art to all.
