Artwalk in San Francisco’s North Beach
Looking for something to do this weekend? Take the North Beach Artwalk in San Francisco. Here’s some basic info on the walk:
Look at an artist’s new work in a shop that’s showcasing art as well as unique merchandise, enjoy live music in Kerouac Alley, drop into an open studio or gallery, listen to poets read as you sip a latte in a cafe. It’s all part of the Third Annual North Beach ArtWalk, September 25 and 26 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Venues along Columbus Avenue, Grant Avenue, and many neighboring streets from Washington to Bay Streets are featuring more than 40 artists, poets, and musicians in this two-day free event sponsored by the Telegraph Hill Dwellers Art & Culture Committee. Jumping-off point for ArtWalk is Live Worms Gallery, 1345 Grant Avenue, which hosts a group show of work by all participating artists. At Live Worms you can pick up a map of locations and artists and get your map stamped for special bargains at participating venues.
