Last year when I moved to Stockton I had the opportunity to learn about the Art Splash and city’s art culture. I got involved with some of the art groups in the city, and I was able to meet quite a few of the talented artists the city has. Within that circle I realized the art community is quite big and prospering in the city.
2019 had the biggest art collaboration to date with business coming together, artists get to share their work in different locations and dates throughout the city, and it all comes together with the biggest show the ‘Art Splash’. Music, food, art and fun art activities for the kids and family made the Art Splash at the Weber Point really fun (same location as the CCPR5). Two music stages, taco trucks, wine, and enough room for people to enjoy the ambiance. Although, I personally went to support the music scene as I’ve had the opportunity to meet a couple of the local bands, and have gotten to become acquaintance with few of them. The artists I got to see had outdone themselves. Some of my favorite art pieces came from the Mexican Heritage Center and their Artists. Their ‘Dia de los muertos’ Altar was not only beautiful but people visiting constantly stopped by to take pictures of the altar and with the altar. The decorations and colors truly made it the best of the show.
Music wise I enjoyed the vibes Bizarre Bazaar brought to the second stage. The lyrics and drums accompanying the performance made it a performance to remember. As I continue my path to become path alongside the music arts and music industry. Hopefully I get to create a music video for one of the local artist some time soon. I can only imagine it would be fun and creative.
