This past Saturday, Paint Encinitas was in attendance for the Art’s Alive Banner Unveiling brought to you by The 101 Artists’ Colony, Leucadia 101 Main Street Association, and Cardiff 101 Main Street Association. The event featured 103 local San Diego artists at the former Cabo Grill at 1950 N. Coast Hwy in Leucadia. Each artist painted an individual banner which will be displayed on light posts throughout 101 in Encinitas (Leucadia, Old Encinitas, and Cardiff-by-the-Sea). Then on Sunday, June 8th an auction will be held for interested art enthusiasts. Bids start at $150.00 and will be split 50/50 with the artist and one of the three organizations listed above.
Paint Encinitas gives major props to this event! The art was phenomenal; and we cannot wait for the banners to be displayed on the streets of Encinitas for all to appreciate and feel inspired! Additionally, this was by far the most efficient way to meet local artists for our upcoming mural project including professional local muralists Skye Walker and Bryan Helfand. Check out their websites to view the awesome murals and public art pieces that these artists have contributed to Encinitas!
