“Art San Diego has emerged as one of the best-attended cultural events in Southern California and continues to grow annually,” said Linda Mariano, Redwood Media Group’s director of marketing. “San Diego is one of the nation’s most vibrant urban cities—and the convention center is at the core of all the action. We’re excited to offer attendees and exhibitors this great new location complimented by the vibrant downtown setting with a rich variety of restaurants, retail stores and world-class entertainment in mere walking distance.”

Entering its second decade this fall, Art San Diego is a four-day art event that showcases more than 70 local, national, and international exhibitors featuring works from over 500 established and emerging artists. The event is expected to draw over 15,000 in attendance over the four-day run. Art San Diego is set to be bigger than ever with the inclusion of new programs featuring a local artist spotlight night, a family day, a craft beer night and a brunch-themed Sunday. More information about each new program is to come.

New programs introduced last year that are back by popular demand are Free Friday, Palette of Desserts and Access to Art. Friday offers free admission to anyone from 1-5 p.m. Palette of Desserts is a partnership with local chefs and bakeries who draw inspiration from an artist’s to-be-exhibited piece and create a dessert masterpiece to be sampled. Access to Art partners the visual arts with San Diego based nonprofits, resulting in a sizeable donation for each during the four-day event.

The San Diego Convention Center recently underwent a complete renovation and now features an industry-standard trade show floor, high-tech lighting and a cooling and heating system for maximum comfort year-round. Additionally, The San Diego Convention Center offers more accessibility options for attendees to see the show by means of car, bus or trolley.

Tickets are on sale now at www.art-sandiego.com. Artist exhibitor applications are still open at art-sandiego.com/exhibitor-application/. Sponsorship opportunities are also available; interested parties may email sponsors@art-sandiego.com for more information.
