June 20, 2019
Located in the Downtown and Smoky Hollow districts, over thirty creative El Segundo businesses will open their doors for studio tours and become a pop-up gallery displaying original artwork of Los Angeles based artists.
ESAW pairs artists with local businesses to display their work on the premises. Yes, it is an art walk, but the art is only half of the attraction. The venues are what make the event so unique. El Segundo has an abundance of remarkable and historic architecture, most of which house businesses not open to the general public. The opportunity to gain access to these distinctive spaces makes for an extraordinary experience.
The evening features fine art, live music, great food and studio tours. It’s fun and it’s FREE! The El Segundo Art Walk will take place the third Thursday evening of the summer months – June 20, July 18 and August 15.
Trust me, you don’t want to miss this….put it on your calendar NOW.
