Covina's 1st ArtWalk Coming In April!

Now blogging for approximately 3 years, representing the eastside of Downtown Los Angeles county all the way to Mills/Claremont Ave (County Line) and of course, other strange places when possible (LOL), I am always excited when anything Art and Community happens to any local town! So you know how happy I am to hear about Covina joining in the Art game now and am proud to let ya'll know about this (if you haven't heard).

Good'ol City of Covina will be hosting an ArtWalk once a month, similar to Pomona's 2nd Saturday, but this time it will be every 1st Saturday of the month! It will all begin on APRIL 7th, 2012 3pm-7pm. The appropriate name is the CITRUS ARTWALK, so be sure to check it out. Now we have 2 major local ArtWalks in a month, and if you throw in Claremont's 1st Friday, it truly is 3! This is an awesome way to begin every month of the year. I'm so excited, as these are all close to me off the 10 freeway!

On a personal note and rant: Pomona, seriously, you still want to start charging for parking when you're not even halfway to a 'Pasadena'? I don't care if it's just $1-2, you're scaring away art lovers, good people, and are going to be left with the club goers and nothing else (local businesses that aren't 'clubs' will suffer even more). I'd wait another year minimally before approaching the topic again. Now other cities 'Old Towns' are picking up on ArtWalks... even La Puente experimented with an 'ArtWalk' last week. Pomona, I suggest you not let the 'parking fees' being floated around the VPD and City Council make your art crowd go away to nearby towns this early. I get you, I do, but just not yet. Hopefully this 'parking fee' isn't official yet... but according to my buds over at M-M-M-My Pomona, it looks like a mostly done deal, awaiting final City Council decision, which if approved, can begin as early as April 1.
