ARTWALK Culver City opens the doors of the area’s art galleries to introduce a wider audience to the unique vitality of the artist spaces of Culver City.

The event will kick-off with a 2:00pm performance of artist Gary Baseman’s Giggle and Pop! at Helms Walk in the Helms Bakery District. During the afternoon, there will be free, interactive art-making opportunities offered by Graphaids and Art Works Studio & Classroom in the Culver City Art District. The City of Culver City encourages bus transportation and bicycle riding for ARTWALK Culver City. Culver CityBus will offer an ARTWALK Bus Pass and a special shuttle bus on the day of the event.
