Student art canvases on display in Del Mar


To brighten the holiday season young artists at nine local schools created art on canvases paid for by the Del Mar Foundation. The Foundation provided these canvases as a Young Del Mar program, in lieu of an in-person event the Foundation would normally sponsor during the holidays. Volunteers from the city’s Arts Advisory Committee worked with arts educators to organize the project.

These cheery works of art, with the theme, “Ocean to Beach, Our Art Has Reach”, are now on display in store windows throughout downtown, and will remain so through Jan. 10. Look for them at the locations below, which overlap with the Del Mar Art Walk; an easy 1-mile stroll highlighting the Temporary Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit, artworks in the city’s permanent art collection, and the Del Mar Plaza’s public art collection.
