Art Walk at La Fiesta 2016

Published by:


Sunday, October 2, from 8am to 4pm the Art Walk came out in full force at Our Lady of Gaudalupe Church‘s annual La Fiesta. Art from various schools and Grade levels were displayed — many celebrating the Halloween season. This was the first time that the OLG decided to include the Art Walk in its festivities. Throngs of people (estimated at 8,000) were weaving in and out of the exhibits.

According to Suzzane, only 1 pumpkin was left out of 200 that the Art Walk brought to the fair.

Sept 10 Art Walk at the Mysterium Theatre

It was supposed to be at the Children’s Museum but some last minute adjustments switched the location to the next door neighbor — the Mysterium Theatre. And wouldn’t you know it, Mysterium  moved its entire production to the the open air … right outside the Children’s Library.

I parked outside the streets and as soon as I got off the car, I heard people speaking with a British accent. I gazed over and I thought the Shakespear theater had moved in. It turned out that the Mysterium was doing an original re-write of Robin Hood. I looked around and did not see the rest of the Art Walk people so I decided to watch the play and draw caricatures of the actors. I also did a caricature of one of the audience who was visiting from Australia.

When the play was over I moved to the Mysterium and there the Art Walk people were. It had a  more cozy arrangement than the previous events. It was nice.


I wanted to do my caricatures as usual but I forgot to bring my chair and table.  I decided to enjoy going around and chatting with people.

Here are some pictures of the event. Courtesy of professional photographer Miguel Pola.
