Benito del Aguila has done it again. Last year (and subsequent years before that) he told us that his annual get-together would be the place where "...artists, the community and art collectors will interact in a atmosphere." He was totally... 100%... correct.
This year, his seminal event is moving from CEART to one of our state's most iconic landmarks, the oceanfront Baja Studios (KM 32.8) on the Libre (Free Road). Can we expect a "titanic" experience? If past year's gatherings are accurate indicators, don't bet against it!
The dates and times have been carefully chosen for maximum attendance by our area's cognescenti, On Saturday and Sunday, May 26th and 27th, all exhibits will be open from 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM with outstanding live entertainment being featured during most of those hours on both days. If you're a local (resident or visitor), you'll have no trouble finding the fabled venue. If you're coming from Southern California (north of the border), you can choose to leave the driving to professionals while parking your vehicle in the Balboa Park area of San Diego. You can get all the information about this special option by e-mailing to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Admission to the event for both days is FREE while the round trip transportation from Balboa Park, if you choose to use this optional service, will cost each attendee $20 per person round trip.
This year there will be more than 140 stands where visitors will enjoy fine art from local artists and from places as far as Canada, Pensilvania, California, Mexico City, Nuevo Leon, Jalisco, Sonora, Puebla and Michoacan. Plus design, crafts and folk art from south Mexico like Great Masters of Mexican Folk Art: David Linares (world famous paper mache alebrijes), Castillo family (amazing colorful ceramics from Izucar de Matamoros Puebla), Enedina Vasquez (terracota ceramics from Oaxaca) and Master Angelico Jimenez (also from Oaxaca with amazing coloful animal figurines made of woodcarvings) among others. In the scenic arts some of the international talent will be represented by Maxi Copello from Buenos Aires Argentina, Sin Color from Los Angeles CA, and to close the event on Sunday nigth from the San Diego-Tijuana area the famous band Boulevard Descarga.
This is a very special gathering of the best artists and performers in a world class venue that you don't want to miss!, Onsite parking at the Baja Studios venue is 30 pesos (less than $3 USD) per day.
