Artober and the 2nd Saturday ArtWalk in Sacramento: October 8, 2011

October 8th is, indeed the 2nd Saturday of the month and in Sacramento that means it is time for our Art Walk.

And since this is October, that means that in Sacramento it is actually…..Artober!!

“It’s obvious in our theatres, murals, culinary offerings, literary readings, exhibits, local film making, and in the clubs and venues that host area musicians.”

Artober is 31 days of art & soul in Sacramento.

“Artober 2011 builds on a special promotional campaignArts.Open.October – that was launched in 2010 in response to Mayor Kevin Johnson’s call for increased visibility of the talent in Sacramento”.

October is also National Arts and Humanities Month .

2nd Saturday events during Artober include:


Oct 6 Opera at the Cathedral

Oct 7 Tower of North American Youth Film and Education Day

Oct 7 Nonprofit Resource Center Spotlight on Social Media for the Arts

Oct 9 Arts Open House at Community Center Theatre
