Take a short, cool ride across San Diego Bay to enjoy the works of more than 100 artists from around the country during this year’s Coronado Art Walk at the Coronado Ferry Landing, Sept. 14 and 15, 2013. Admission is free. Musical entertainment and hands-on art activities will be available both Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Coronado Art Walk, a juried art show, is a major fundraiser for the Coronado Historical Association.

The Ferry Landing, located on the Coronado side of San Diego Bay is a picture-perfect setting for the two-day art and music celebration. At colorful booths like the Rad Hatter, Stitches from the Heart and other hands-on art stations visitors can try their hand at weaving, painting or creating colorful cards for service persons overseas, while little ones may have their faces painted.

Musical entertainment is an important facet of the outdoor event every year, and a variety of popular groups, including the Sundance Band, Breez’n, the Bayou Brothers and the ever-popular Bill Magee Blues Band, will perform on the main stage over the two days.

The event attracts artists from many different parts of the country, who work in a wide variety of media, including jewelry, ceramics, painting and colored pencil, sculpture, photography, glass, body ornament, textiles and wood. A number of the artists have been a part of the event since the first Coronado Art Walk eight years ago.

The Ferry Landing provides a variety of dining opportunities with good choices available on-site for every appetite and budget.

Visitors will find ample parking available but for anyone wishing to forgo their cars for the day, the San Diego/Coronado Ferry will be carrying pedestrians and bicyclists across the bay (a fee is charged for ferry service).

A free M.T.A. shuttle bus (No. 904) is available to shuttle visitors from the Ferry Landing along Orange Avenue to the Coronado Library, Coronado Museum of History & Art, Coronado Visitor Center, downtown shopping and dining spots, the beach and the Hotel del Coronado.

The Coronado Art Walk is presented by the Coronado Historical Association, with support from the Unified Port of San Diego and the Coronado Tourism Improvement District, and donations from many others.
