Every four to six weeks we will rotate our guest artists offering a new art form every new period.
Artists Alley @ Midtown is an artist-driven farmers market that transforms Midtown Lane in Oldtown Salinas into a local artists’ pop-up shop. Hosting over 20 artists from our community, we are cultivating a space for professional and emerging artists to present and sell their creative works while networking with other artists.
We also provide live music and an open stage where musicians, spoken word, dance, karaoke, etc. take place. In Addition, we provide a variety of youth activities, offering access to our studio space and all our materials for FREE. Artists Alley is a FREE community event taking place every First Friday of the month from 5pm to 9pm. Artists Alley is also FREE to all Artist and Artisan participants
The numbers are based on the three programs Artists Ink offers (Teatro Xochitl Ollin, Creative Leaders, and Nepanoa) and Artists Ink’s various theatrical productions.
The community offerings range from tabling at the local farmers market, readings at the Western Stage and Alisal High School, and the theatrical performances of La Posada Magica.
This includes the YOLI Arts in-school program, the collaborative projects with UC Berkley, California State University Monterey Bay, the National Steinbeck Center, and DigitalNEST
