A center for culture, creativity and vibrancy, Midtown Sacramento is an exciting 2nd Saturday Art Walk destination where local art galleries and other participating businesses collaborate to host a popular evening open house each month. Midtown guests will enjoy viewing art exhibits, participating in hands-on activities, meeting local artists, sampling food and wine, listening to live music and more.

  • Art of Toys (1126 18th Street) – invites guests to discover the fun art of the ROBOT that features works by Chris Cinder, Garry Gay, Robert Gordon and John Barrett. Plus, a free hands-on art activity will be out front for all ages from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. 
  • Art Asylum (at the First United Methodist Church located at 2100 J St) – will present amazing art work created by talented and aspiring Sacramento City College student artists. Guests are encouraged to stop by to enjoy great art, refreshments, and an art activity. 
  • Capital City Beads (1729 L Street) – is offering a special “Make-N-Take Class” (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) where guests have an opportunity to make their own bracelets with moms and/or for moms.  After selecting supplies to customize the bracelet, trained jewelry artists will assist guests in designing and creating a truly unique gift (class cost is $5; bracelet materials not included). 
  • CK Art (2500 J Street) – is proud and excited to present a special “Best-of-the-Best” art exhibit that showcases the top-selling artists who helped to make the first six months of CK Art such a success.  CK Art offers contemporary artwork by emerging and established artists working in a variety of mediums available in a broad range of prices, from investment pieces to excellent gifts.
