2012 Encinitas Arts Alive Unveiling – February 4th

Dedicated in Memory of Arts Patron and Councilwoman Maggie Houlihan

January 2012– This year’s Arts Alive Unveiling is scheduled for Saturday, February 4th, 2 p.m., at 1950 N. Coast Highway (former Cabo Grill, just south of La Costa Avenue) in Leucadia.  The 13th year of this six mile art exhibit is dedicated to Encinitas Councilwoman Maggie Houlihan who passed away in September and was a tremendous supporter of the Arts Alive program.

This community art exhibit is launched at the Unveiling where 100 original art paintings will be revealed.  The art has been in the works for over the past three months.  Shortly after the Unveiling, sixty large paintings (nearly 7 feet by 3 feet) and forty smaller ones (5 feet by 1 ½ feet) will be hanging along light poles on the Coast Highway from Leucadia to Cardiff-By-The-Sea – from February until May.

During the Unveiling and continuing until the Final Auction on May 20 at the Cardiff Town Center, silent bids will be taken by DEMA at 760-943-1950. Bids start at $150 with half of the proceeds being directed to the artists and the other half to produce the exhibit and to support various non-profit organizations.

Arts Alive is produced by the 101 Artists’ Colony, Cardiff 101 Main Street, Leucadia 101 Main Street along with the Downtown Encinitas MainStreet Association (DEMA).  This year’s sponsors are Cardiff Seaside Market, UC San Diego Health System Concierge Medicine, and Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas.
