All The Freaky People Make the Beauty: August ArtRide Shots & ArtRide Tonight!
FINALLY! Here are some of my favorite shots from last month’s ArtRide “Western Nghts & Carnival Lights” that I took with my handy iPhone. Daniel took a lot more and when I get a chance, I’ll post some!
We started at the promenade where we took photos and then more photos at the Ventura River and the sea. We cruised Main and Ventura Avenue; ArtRide stops included Bell Arts Factory and the WAV and more before we stopped for chow at Anacapa Brewery where Danny generously discounted our beer and food. Then we rode down to the Fairgrounds and the ocean to watch the fireworks! What a great night!
And here it is, time for another “All the Freaky People” will join the First Friday ArtRide Sept 3!
Michael Franti sings “All the Freaky People Make the Beauty in the World”…and, along with Burning Man, inspired the theme for the September 3 First Friday ArtRide around downtown Ventura. For all those freaks missing Burning Man, and for all those wannabe Burners, this ArtRide is for you!
Dress in your playa best or in your most fun, most outrageous clothing (think Mardi Gras then kick it up a notch!) and join the San Buenaventura Bicycle and Social Club for a free ArtRide around town with an after party at Art City featuring beer from Anacapa, wine from Frei Brothers, and music by DJ Jeremy Walker.
Donations requested for beverages and food will go to arts, bicycle, and climate advocacy groups; please bring your own mug.
The ArtRide is family friendly; children under 18 must wear a helmet and children under 8 must ride with a parent in a seat, trailer or trailabike.
Ride at 6pm along the Promenade to Main Street to various art galleries, exhibits and studios. We’ll start over on Laurel/Front, then back on Main to CA & Santa Clara, then up Ventura Avenue to WAV, Bell Arts & 643 Project Space, then over to Art City with a stop at Stoneworks for those so inclined.
Follow the ArtRide to the afterparty at Art City 197 Dubbers Ventura. A special thanks to Frei Brothers and Anacapa Brewery for their after party beverage donations.
