On December 3, 2015, from 6 pm to 9 pm, Mar Vista had its smash hit inaugural art walk. Our first art walk was selected as a participant in the VisionLA 2015 Climate Action Arts Festival, held in conjunction with the Paris talks on Climate Change in December 2015.   More than 500 people came to the celebration of local arts on the one-mile stretch of Venice Boulevard between Inglewood Boulevard and Beethoven Street.  Designated as one of Mayor Garcetti’s “Great Streets” of Los Angeles, the nine-block strip celebrates all the arts – visual, musical, spoken and movement – as well as its history as one of Los Angeles’ oldest artist colonies.  

Mar Vista Art Walk is a joint effort of Green Communications Initiative (GCI) and the local arts community -- its galleries, studios, artists and musicians -- with enthusiastic support of CD-11 councilmember Mike Bonin and the Mar Vista Community Council.  

The Mar Vista ArtWalk is made possible in part by grants from the City Of Los Angeles, Department Of Cultural Affairs, Sony Pictures Entertainment, The M & R Vest Foundation, and the Mar Vista Community Council, and with the support of Community Partners, and sponsors Michelle Pine Rappoport - KW Realty, and Gravlax Restaurant.
