Unveiling held for Arts Alive Banners


The 101 Artists’ Colony, Cardiff 101 Main Street and Leucadia 101 Main Street held an event Feb. 14 to unveil the Arts Alive Banners to be displayed along the Historic Coast Highway on the lampposts from La Costa Avenue in Leucadia to Cardiff’s Restaurant Row and the Seaside Market.

One of the favorite art events in North County, the Encinitas Arts Alive Banner Exhibit began in 2001. This is the 15th year artists have been invited to participate in the six-mile art show that was installed immediately after the unveiling on Feb. 14. The banners will be on display until late May prior to the Final Live Auction on June 7.

Silent bidding on the banners began at the unveiling and bids can also be placed during the three-month outdoor exhibit by calling Leucadia 101 Main Street at 760 436- 2320. Bidders can place bids right up to the Final Live Auction on June 7, which will be hosted by auctioneer Rich Houk. The entire collection of original art will be on display one last time at the Final Auction to be held at the Seaside Market Plaza in Cardiff.
