Artist Surfboard Auction Benefiting ArtReach
April 27 - April 28Free
Mission Federal ArtWalk will host a Surfboard Art Auction in partnership with Rerip, a nonprofit organization that specializes in repurposing surfboards to minimize waste. The auction will benefit ArtReach, Mission Federal ArtWalk’s nonprofit partner that delivers visual arts education to underserved K-8 schools throughout San Diego County. In celebration of Mission Federal ArtWalk’s 35th anniversary and to recognize San Diego’s iconic beach culture, Rerip has provided 35 upcycled surfboards for artists to transform using various mediums including painting, mosaic, woodwork and more. The artfully transformed boards will be auctioned off through a silent auction online and in the Piazza della Famiglia during the event.
Mission Federal ArtWalk will be located between Ash and Grape Streets in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28.
