The City of Culver City will present the sixth annual ARTWALK Culver City on Saturday, June 4 from 2 pm to 8 pm. 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. The event especially celebrates the Culver City Art District, a cluster of more than thirty galleries exhibiting new and distinguished artists, located near the intersection of Washington and La Ciengea Boulevards. This free, self-guided tour of local art galleries and exhibition spaces is sponsored by the Hammer Museum, ForYourArt, 89.9 KCRW, LA Weekly, Flavorpill and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Over thirty-five galleries will be open from 2:00pm to 6:00pm and selected galleries will remain open until 8:00pm that evening. Individual gallery hours may vary.

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 Complex. This special performance is inspired by Gary Baseman’s drawings and paintings. His “ChouChous” and “Wild Girls” come to life through the choreography of Julie Carson and students of the Culver City High School Academy of Visual and Performing Arts. The costumed characters will dance and play throughout the Culver City Art District following the performance and offer limited edition art pieces, designed by Gary Baseman and the AVPA art students under the direction of Kristine Hatanaka, to those who stop and play. Also, during the afternoon, there will be free, family-friendly, interactive art-making opportunities offered by Graphaids and Art Works Studio & Classroom in the Culver City Art District.

More information about ARTWALK Culver City is available by calling the Culver City Cultural Affairs Hotline at 310.253.5716 or by visiting www.culvercity.org or the City of Culver City’s Facebook Page.
