SATURDAY ARTWALK CONTINUES!
10/21, 11/18 and 12/16

The San Pedro Property Owners Alliance in collaboration with the San Pedro Waterfront Arts District is excited to announce an experimental Third Saturday ArtWalk. The dates will be the third Saturdays on October 21st, November 18th and December 16th, 2017, from 2:00-6:00pm. The Property Owners Alliance (also known as the PBID) and the Arts District invite the public to explore the galleries and artist lofts, dine in our unique eateries and stay for a show or listen to music at local bars and restaurants.

The Third Saturday ArtWalk activities will include:

  • Over 30 artists and galleries
  • Free PBID Trolleys
  •  Live Music and Painting
  • Free Guided ArtWalk Tours at 2:30pm leaving from Sirens – 357 West 7 Street

The Property Owners Alliance and the Arts District want to add a weekend ArtWalk in order to give out of area arts patrons a chance to visit our artists and galleries. This effort is in addition to the 20 year old First Thursday ArtWalk, which is still going strong.

The free guided ArtWalk tours will be offered at 2:30pm, leaving from Sirens Java and Tea, 357 West 7th Street. Live music will be performed on 7th Street, as well as live painting by Machine Studio. The free PBID Trolleys will be running throughout the historic downtown core of San Pedro.

ANGELS GATE CULTURAL CENTER
3601 South Gaffey Street

October 21st 6:00 pm at the Artillery Theater

As part of the ongoing programming around Coastal/Border Dany Naierman will present Port Capa. Port Capa is an exploration of the Port of Los Angeles and surrounding areas. This encounter comprises outdoor multimedia installations and a faux-tour that manifests a threshold between the visible and invisible; a zone where ships in the night, cranes in the distance, and hundreds of thousands of containers move in a symphony. Founded on a massive technological and human effort, Capa, Spanish for “layers,” results in an abstracted landscape guided by puppetry and kinetics. Follow @PORTCAPA on Instagram.

October 29th at 11:15 am in Building H

The MOVEMENT movement Danz Workshop lead by Mecca Vazie Andrews is a two hour dance gathering under the umbrella of Coastal/Border, a Pacific Standard Time LA/LA exhibition opening in September 2017. We will move through concepts of migration and boundary using sound, meditation and various movement techniques. The workshop is tailored to the individual and is defined by the participants as a whole. All are Welcome and Encouraged to participate in this journey. The MOVEMENT movement Danz Workshop is limited to 22 people. The workshop will inform a performance and installation to debut with the exhibition at Angels Gate Cultural Center in the Fall. FOR ALL AGES AND BODIES!

CALL FOR ENTRIES – La Catrina

In light of today’s current events, satire is ubiquitous in modern pop culture and politics. In honor of Jose Posada, Gallery Azul is announcing this year’s theme “La Catrina.” Gallery Azul would like to invite artist to re-create their own satirical version of the “Catrina” or their own version of the classic. PLEASE NOTE: A Catrina must be the central theme of the art. Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government, or society itself into improvement.

No fee to enter. This is a juried show.
