Ode to Oceanside brings the Art Walk back to its roots and truly allows the art to connect to the city, which is fitting for this stage in the Art Walk’s life. Downtown Oceanside is the hub of this city and that is where our growing art scene needs to be fostered, loved and appreciated. There is no better way to remind the city of this art bounty in our back yard than dedicating an entire night to the beauty that surrounds Oceanside every day in the sea, mountains, murals, streets, people, architecture and more.
Art Walk will celebrate its One Year Anniversary in August when the theme will be "Through a Lens Artly." However, this month is when the Art Walk truly celebrates the town it loves and resides in. Remember that the festivities run from 6:00-9:00 on Friday June 5th and some venues host light refreshments while all of them host fun and great art. Don’t forget to pick up a map at any location so you can track where you have been and make sure you see everything in this wonderful "Ode to Oceanside."
