Carmel Art Walk

The Carmel Art Walk was founded five years ago by local artists who feel strongly about continuing the legacy of Carmel's early 20th-century bohemian art colony, when artists regularly opened their studios to the public, giving people the opportunity to meet and socialize with the artists and to see them at work. Pick up a map at any of the participating galleries (see full gallery list below) and be sure to follow the blue lanterns during the walk - each participating gallery will have a lantern displayed out front to help you along your self-guided tour.
