Whether you’re looking to go out with friends, family, a new hot date, or just to get out of the house for a bit, Sacramento365 is your one-stop-shop to help you “Make it a Night”!
Paint the town (literally) this August! In honor of this month’s Wide Open Walls, we’re celebrating our city’s bright colors and public art. Wide Open Walls is designed to celebrate the relevancy and diversity of street art, as over 40 artists — local, national, and international — transform walls and neighborhoods throughout the downtown area and beyond. This 11-day festival (August 10-20) will also include many opportunities for the public to engage with the artists – including gallery openings, public mural tours, artists’ receptions and panels, First Friday and Second Saturday celebrations, and an outside the lines finale party benefiting arts education.
While you’re out this month enjoying our local arts scene, get social and share your “Make it a Night” fun by using the hashtag #Sacramento365!
