COMPTON The charter Compton Art Walk happens March 30, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, at the Center for Sustainable Communities, 1051 W. Rosecrans Ave., Compton.

David Colbert, Jr., executive director and founder of Compton Art Walk, says the event is purposed to acknowledge local artists, entrepreneurs, and leaders in the City and invites the community to meet aspiring artists, as well as business, and civic leaders.

“I am a third-generation product of Compton and I say that with pride,” Colbert said. “Over the years I have encountered many people who often wondered about visiting Compton, who were curious about the city’s mystique. The Compton Art Walk will fill that void, putting a spotlight on the city’s rich history of success, while connecting its established past with its bright future.”

The Art Walk will offer original art, open-mic performances, fashion, retail, food, and refreshments.

Colbert noted the Art Walk will be a quarterly event enabling artists the opportunity to showcase their talent and attract economic support to Compton.

“Youth programs [will be] offered by industry professionals in fashion, photography, media, culinary arts, and wellness,” said Colbert, adding that youth will be able to benefit from the programs in terms of education, professional expertise, creative thinking, collaboration, networking, and time management.
