Art Walk + Block Party
Check back for 2018 dates
Dear artists, superheroes, sponsors, community partners and attendees:
Thank you so much for your participation in 2 Blocks of Art on October 13, 2017; the night was a great success, in large part, due to you!
Photos featuring the 28 art exhibits are now online – check them out to see the artworks and individuals who helped flip 6th Street from an average day to a superhero night.
Also, don’t forget to check out the video of the 6th Street Superheroes that inaugurated our new large-scale light art installation, which premiered on the back of the 16-story 995 Market St.
Feel free to share comments and pictures of the event with us at info@2BlocksOfArt.org
2 Blocks of Art also brought back ‘Sketch the Block’ for a 2nd year. Co-produced with Sketchpad Gallery, this one-night sketch con hosted artists in the fields of visual concept, comic books, and video games, offering affordable and accessible art to all.

"2 Blocks of Art enables the small businesses on 6th Street to be something different for an evening – to be an art gallery or music venue – and their business is exposed to people that would otherwise maybe not come in." - Alan Quismorio
“My optometry practice featured a fashion designer the first year. She filled my waiting room with mannequins wearing her designs and my walls with her framed illustrations. There was a line out the door most of the night.” - Dr. Jack Sinow
“People from all over come and see 6th Street in its best light. Good energy and smiling faces everywhere. I wish we could do this event every month.” - Ingrid Aquino
