13th Annual LeucadiART Walk Showcases Local Artists
The 13th Annual LeucadiART Walk was a great success, drawing thousands of people to North Coast Highway 101 to view original works of fine art by local artists. Attendees also enjoyed craft beer, six live music stages, live dance performances, children’s activities, and interactive art demo stations. “Leucadia holds a special place in North County as the ‘art and soul of Encinitas,’” shared Leucadia 101 Main Street Executive Director Kellie Shay Hinze, “and the annual LeucadiART Walk is the day when this identity is celebrated and fortified by artists, musicians, performers, local businesses, residents, and visitors alike.” The event also featured a live 20-by-30-foot mural installation on the wall of Surfhouse Adventures as a tribute to Leucadia’s surf culture, made possible by a grant from the City of Encinitas and the Mizel Family Foundation.
Leucadia 101 Main Street seeks to support the historic Leucadia North Coast Highway 101 corridor by enhancing its economic and civic vitality, which includes promotion and marketing its vision, fostering partnerships, retail development, and a “sense of place,” while acting as the lead advocate for its historic preservation and community cultivation through the engagement of all its citizens. Other events sponsored by Leucadia 101 include Summer Fun on the 101, Arts Alive, Battle of the Bands, and Taste of Leucadia, among others. Discover more at www.leucadia101.com.
