If you love art, you won't want to miss ArtWalk Ventura 2017. 

ArtWalk Ventura is one of Ventura's signature events, drawing thousands every year. Run by an all-volunteer group, this weekend event is fresh and festive and focused on Ventura’s authentic cultural community. Now in its 25th year ArtWalk Ventura is a fun, virtually free, self-guided tour of dozens of galleries, studios, pop-up venues and transformed PODS Containers in Ventura's Westside Cultural District and Downtown.

2017 Featured Events including Bowl Hop where you can buy a beautiful, hand-crafted Bowl Hop bowl and receive a punch card that allows visits to participating restaurants during the weekend for a delicious sampling of their cuisines! A Bowl costs $25, with all proceeds benefiting Downtown Ventura's Family Reconnection Program, which helps connect needy individuals with family or an appropriate support network.

2017 Global Artist of Distinction is Shamsia Hassani. Hassani  is a graffiti artist from Kabul, Afghanistan who often paints women in Burqas/women in symbolic shapes, and fishes, symbols of the atmosphere flowing around her and her own life experiences.

2017 Venues include: PODS Containers, Vita Art Center, Ventura Visitors & Convention Bureau, Parson's Galleries, Namba Performing Arts Space, Mainstreet Architects and many more.

ArtWalk Ventura provides a free shuttle sponsored by Kirby Automotive Group and Roadrunner Shuttle. Passenger pick-up is at the parking lot entrance to the Museum of Ventura County (100 E. Main Street in Downtown Ventura). The shuttle goes from the Museum to Bell Arts Factory, dropping you within a block of Stoneworks Studios. The shuttle then heads over to Art City on Dubbers Ave and then to the WAV (Working Artists Ventura) before it returns to the Museum.
