Artista Vista returns for its 20th anniversary April 28 to 30. Galleries and local artists welcome visitors with complimentary wine, hors d’oeurves and insight into the artwork they have on display. Nationally recognized artists, along with local and up-and-coming artists, will be featured in this year’s event.
A special addition will be the unveiling of Susan Lenz’s art quilt, “Find a Mate,” composed of socks that were donated by attendees of Vista Lights last fall. Lenz’s quilt is intended to be a community art project, focused on educating the public about art quilts.
Free parking will be available in the Vista parking decks on Lincoln Street near Lady, Park Street near Pendleton and Lady Street near Wayne.
The Vista is Columbia’s main art district, and it has continued to keep the art scene alive through the past couple of decades. The creative energy of the Vista has been the driving force in the success of restaurants, shopping and nightlife today.
