History of the Art Walk

Art Walks, as they are referred to, are specific dates and locations where communities – with ideally, a high concentration of artists and galleries near to each other within walking distance – open their doors to the public, welcoming them inside to view their art with the consideration to buy art work.

Historical research on the first art walks in the world leads one to surmise that art walks must be as old as art and the development of society itself, with the cooperation of communities, and arts festivals. Art; the foundation and spirit of culture, has always been celebrated with The Art Walk.

Los Angeles – A World Class City for the Arts

As the second largest city in The United States, Los Angeles has a burgeoning new art scene; from the Downtown L.A. Art Walk, the massive L.A. Art Show, dozens of other art walks throughout the city, and some of the best museums, fine art, and top art dealers in the world. It is therefore an honor that artist Caryl M. Christian Levy accepts proudly and graciously the nomination as the top featured artist of the L.A. Art Walk in November 2013.

Caryl M. Christian Levy – Background

Asked about her work, Caryl M. Christian-Levy said, “My practice as a professional artist, educator and public art professional brings together many related disciplines providing a framework for collaborations with artists, cultural institutions, communities and city programs, and the public and private development in the realization of public art projects, programs and site specific commissioned public artworks.”

On lectures and workshops, Caryl said, “I currently lecture, instruct, and conduct workshops and presentations addressing the public realm with the goal of generating new arts policies and guidelines through inclusive community dialogues.” As a top artist, and educator, as well as a public artist of great renown world wide, it is therefore of no surprise why she would be chosen as the featured artist for one of America’s now most famous art walks.

Artists Statement

“As an artist, my painting and studio work comes from a Midwestern influence during the late 60’s and early 70’s. Most of us working during this decade saw the shift in object to process, the impact upon my studio art manifests in current installations created with my long time art collaborator and husband, John Levy. These monumental installations touch every aspect of my art and performance music background in addition to combining my tendency towards collaborative projects.” – Caryl M. Christian Levy
