GuadalupArte Art Crawl

Walking through the Art District of the Guadalupe neighborhood on a normal day means being surprised and delighted at every corner. Bright murals pop with rainbow colors, and new restaurants seem to be opening every week.

December 9th, the artists of San Miguel's vibrant Arts District will open their studios for GuadalupArte, a neighborhood art crawl celebrating the creativity that flourishes behind the mural-covered walls. The hours are long, the studios many, and there are plenty of spots to stop for your favorite beverage as you enjoy an afternoon/evening of strolling through Guadalupe.

You are invited to enjoy a fascinating glimpse into the creative spaces of a diverse range of talented artists. Maps will be available at each location or in advance at La Huipilista Artspace.
