The Kids & Art Foundation, a San Mateo-based organization, will hold a Kids & Art Holiday Art Walk in partnership with downtown businesses on Thursday, December 16, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The Art Walk will celebrate the Kids & Art Foundation’s first anniversary as a Section 501(c)(3) organization, and will serve to thank the community for its support throughout the year.
Six San Mateo businesses will participate in the Art Walk, including B Street and Vine, B Street Books, Living Peacefully, Draeger’s,Red Brick Pizza, and Sweet Breams. These businesses will display artwork created by children with cancer, their siblings, and other family members, under the creative guidance of caring, Bay Area artists.
The artworks will be on display for five days prior to the Holiday Art Walk, starting Saturday, December 11, and will be available for purchase on the evening of Thursday, December 16, during the Art Walk. The art will include a mix of different media, such as prints, paintings, ceramic masks, watercolors, and photography.
Proceeds from the event, which will include sales of the displayed artwork, and various promotions run by each establishment will provide funds to sustain the Foundation in its mission to promote the healing powers of the creative process, and to provide funds for cancer research. During the Art Walk, while participants enjoy browsing the Kids & Art artwork, free wine, soda, andhors d’œuvre will be offered at Red Brick Pizza, wine will also be served at B Street Books, sample made to order Taiyaki at Sweet Breams, and starting at 8:30 Champagne and dessert will be served at Living Peacefully.
