Long Beach East Village Artists District presents 2ND Saturday, a monthly event, taking place in the East Village Art District of Downtown Long Beach.
Started in 1996, 2ND Saturday organizer and Hellada Gallery owner, Marek Dzida mentions the trick to having a successful artwalk is, “not to program it…keep it organic. What ever the people come up with is what we have. We facilitate the street service for artists to exhibit their works, and allow the synergy that is created during the night to do the rest.”
SHOPPING ON 3RD AND ELM
2ND Saturday also offers a night of meeting new local Shops on 3rd & Elm and discovering what they all have to offer! Their unique specialties include art galleries, eco-friendly children’s merchandise and reusable materials, up-cycled furniture, salon and barber services, sign art, floral design, and vintage modern fashion. The Shops on 3rd & Elm will also host food trucks, artists, vendors, and music.
