92128 resident Starla Coropassi and local organization Visual Arts Group of North County will be among more than 350 local, national, and international artists participating in the 33rd Annual Mission Federal ArtWalk in Little Italy on April 29 and 30 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The free weekend-long event attracts thousands of visitors each year to enjoy art in every medium, along with live music and dance performances, interactive art activities, street food, and family friendly craft projects at KidsWalk. This year’s theme is “Vivid Expression.” Cortopassi will showcase her jewelry, printmaking, and silkscreen creations, and Visual Arts Group of North County will present a range of work from acrylic and watercolor to collage and textiles.


“Mission Federal ArtWalk is for everyone – serious collectors, first-time art buyers, families, and visitors to San Diego,” said Director Sandi Cottrell. “Each year, one of our goals is to ensure attendees feel like they can be a part of the art. We encourage attendees to express themselves throughout the weekend and find their inner artist, which exists in all of us.” For more information go to www.artwalksandiego.org.
