San Luis Obispo Art Walks


I created another infographic listing all of the SLO County art walks. I was inspired to create this because when I moved here I would get all the art walks and farmers markets dates mixed up. Hopefully this will help anyone new to the neighborhood find what they need or make a new discovery.

Attending art walks was a great way for me to experience life in the central coast. They are always fun and laid back. You get to meet your neighbors and make new friends all while enjoying local food and drink. So check out our list and add one to your calendar!

Special thanks to Drew Davis for allowing us to use one of his pieces on our infographic. I really love his work because I’m into bright colors (if you can’t tell already).  Please check out his website. He has original art for sale and art classes!
