Out & About: January 2008 Archives

Out & About - 01/19/2008

| | Comments (0)

Saturday, January 19, 2008 - A bit of artistic flair filled the streets alongside the Mission Inn in downtown Riverside on Saturday as several artists showcased their skills during the the third annual "Paint Out Week." The week-long event was hosted by the Plein Air Artists of Riverside in affiliation with the Riverside Art Museum.

The final day included a contest in which artists had a limited timeframe to complete a street scene painting. Neither the artists nor scenic Mission Inn Avenue disappointed those lucky enough to witness the event. Several works from the event will be displayed at the Riverside Art Museum Jan. 26 through March 29, with a percentage of the proceeds from sales benefitting the Riverside Art Museum.

Elsewhere, downtown hummed with the weekly Saturday morning Farmers' Market on the pedestrian mall. Nearby, fencing surrounds the former Rouse Department Store as it begins its transformation into the UCR / Culver Center for the Arts. Likewise, it appears work is about to begin on the 10-story Regency Tower office building located at Tenth and Orange streets.
