The Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce has a rich population of fine artists within its jurisdiction. With our fair share of Art Galleries and Studios, we feel it is our obligation to promote and reward the cultural contributions of our Artistic population. You will find our Annual Artwalk is recognized as one of the largest open-air fine art events in the foothills. Located in Glendale’s Historic Old Town, this beautiful quaint “old town” setting and tree-lined streets make the perfect backdrop for our unique Art Walk. The Montrose Art Walk will transform the 2300 and 2400 Blocks of Honolulu Ave. Various artists will be displaying their art and demonstrating their work as you stroll along the sidewalks of the boulevard. It will feature over 100′s of pieces of art by more than 20 talented artists from the Foothills area and neighboring cities. The event’s artists are a prominent selection of talented individuals who have distinguished their work in painting, sculpture, glass-work, photography, and other mediums. They will also be demonstrating their creative abilities so you can view first hand some of their techniques. There will be live bands music playing for you to enjoy as you walk around and as always, many fine restaurants and “sweet treats” for you to enjoy in Montrose. Take some time as well to stop into the many fine retail stores that we have. We have bookstores, retail stores, jewelry stores, shoe stores, clothing stores and so much more. Come, re-discover and explore the almost 200 business that comprise the historic, century-old Montrose Shopping Park.
The Montrose, Verdugo-City Art Walk and Sale is a free event for the public and runs from 9am to 4pm. There is free parking in lots north and south of Honolulu ave and metered parking on the streets. We will have a packed schedule of opportunities for individuals and families to engage in and purchase art.
