Pico Block Party is BACK! 18th Street Arts Center’s fourth major Pico Block Party community festival celebrates local Santa Monica artists and artisans. For the very first time, we will feature our brand-new, one-of-a-kind Artisan Marketplace, which will showcase the handmade goods of Santa Monica artists, artisans, chefs, and craftspersons! The Pico Block Party series grew out of 18th Street Arts Center’s in-depth community outreach programs, including its bilingualneighborhood oral history project, CultureMapping90404.org. That project spurred the creation of a Neighborhood Advisory Council in 2018, who helped shape the content for this Pico Block Party. Come sample the creativity in your own backyard, and support local artists in the process!The free family-friendly artistic festival will feature art-making workshops with professional artists, performances, open studios with resident artists, exhibitions, food trucks, artisanal local goods, and other creative activities.
