The La Jolla Art & Wine Festival will kick off its sixth celebration this year on Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the heart of La Jolla along Girard Ave. A nightlife brew fest, expanded festival grounds, and over 200 juried artists will be some of the new additions this year. The art show and fundraiser is free and open to the public and expects to draw in a crowd of over 40,000. Local artists will showcase their finest work, including Sue Britt, a collagist of 92130. Sue captures different landscapes with her handmade paper collages, finding inspiration in the fire cycle of Southern California, the erosion of the cliffs to the sea, and more.

All proceeds from the La Jolla Art & Wine Festival will benefit underfunded school programs and on-site medical care at local public elementary and middle schools. To find out more information about the festival and activities available visit www.ljawf.org.
