Art Walk at the Tamale Festival 2016

Published by:


The La Habra Art Walk ended 2016 with a bang at the Tamale Festival on November 27, 2016. It was the most challenging event to date because it required a lot of coordination with the City of La Habra, the Tent company, and the booth sponsors. There was rain during most of the weekend.

Here are the pictures to prove it.

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.

Of course we had our hand painted unique bowling pins up for auction.
