An Artful Night Along El Cajon Blvd.
See slideshow below.
LA MESA -- The stretch of road that extends between Baltimore Drive, west to the La Mesa City line, is known as El Cajon Boulevard. It has never been known as La Mesa's Miracle Mile, but today there are signs small and large that it is changing.
Along this route you can now find, Terra, arguably the city's best restaurant, and on this past Saturday night, two events occurring just a few doors apart gave the Jewel of the Hills the kind of rich artistic feel communities hope for.
At the Biz Arts Center, Midge Hyde was hosting another in her increasingly popular openings of local artists, including a public display of the architectural installation being planned by local artist Jess Dominquez as the Centennial's Legacy project.
Here photographers, sculptors, painters mingled and displayed work on the otherwise bare walls of business offices and hallways that stretch through the building. Sketch artist Judith Burnett entertained the visitors with fast and extremely well-done portraits of the customers themselves while others gathered up visitors' votes to determine which of the participants in this event would be granted a solo show.
Innovative and engaging art in a very unexpected place.
Arts in La Mesa is where you find them.
