Get Artsy at ART-SEA this Saturday at Mother’s Beach

If you love the beach AND you think pop art is the cat’s meow — then be at Mother’s Beach this Saturday when those two awesome worlds collide! Mark it down, boys and girls — four days from today, from noon to 10 pm, Art-Sea is taking over Marina Beach and transforming it into a beach-hipster Pop Arts District with great local artists, mini galleries, live music and more guiding you through an inspiring day right into a super-stellar night. And did we mention it’s FREE? Yeah, it’s free. (But bring some cash for food trucks, libations and of course, new artwork!)

Here’s what’s on the agenda: 

Mini galleries—See selected collections & exhibitions from a variety of LA galleries & artists (including the Marina del Rey Historical Society).

Interactive art workshops—Get in touch with your artistic side with Playhop Station, Paint a la Plage and other workshops.

Makers’ Market—If the art grabs you, make a purchase and support your local artists!

Professional sand sculpting—The amazing Archisand team will be showing off their mad sand-sculpting skills right before your very eyes. Crazy cool.

Hawaiian dancing—The Halau Keali’i O Nalani Dancers will make you feel like you’re on Maui for the day.

DJs—KCRW’s Anthony Valadez, plus DJ Mara Schwartz Kuge will be spinning a mix of great music.

Live music—Bands including Yacht by Nature, The Buttertones and Quintapenas will get the crowd grooving all day long.

JAM Sessions—Get on the stage and sing, dance or play an instrument with pros from Ford Theatre Foundation leading the way.

Food trucks—Six food trucks will be on-site, including Blast Ice Cream, Surfer Taco, B&R Burgers and more.

Wine & beer garden (21+ please!)—Hosted by Café del Rey, you can purchase wine by the glass, sangria and craft beers.

Activities—Hula hooping from Venice Beach’s Eclectic Hoops and volleyball, plus a chill shade area with games and lounge chairs. Also – when you mention ART-Sea to Paddle Method or Pro SUP Shop before 5 pm, you’ll get discounted offers on lessons (Paddle Method) or board or kayak rentals (Pro SUP Shop).


Now that’s what we call a swingin’ summer Saturday! Let us know — will you be getting artsy at Art-Sea this Saturday? We hope to see you there!
