2 Blocks of Art - art walk & block party
The event brings over 75 artists to 25 locations on two blocks of 6th Street and features a range of art exhibits and live performances in galleries, bars, restaurants, a laundromat, coffee shops and a number of storefronts. New to the event is 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 for a viewing area. 2 Blocks of Art will also bring 'Sketch the Block' back for a 2nd year. Co-produced with Sketchpad Gallery, this sketch-con hosts artists in the fields of visual concept, comic books, and video games and offers affordable and accessible art.
