See Works of Art in all Shapes and Sizes

San Diego is home to art and craft galleries of all shapes and sizes, showcasing work from local, regional, emerging and international artists.

Start a collection or add that perfect piece for your home by browsing through galleries in Little Italy, La Jolla, the Gaslamp Quarter, Ray Street in North Park, the Cedros Design District in Solana Beach and in rustic towns of East County.

San Diego’s beautiful terrain creates the perfect venue for outdoor sculpture. Progressive art programs, like UCSD’s Stuart Art Collection, showcase commissioned artists site-specific sculpture installations throughout the grounds of the university’s gorgeous campus. Take a walk through downtown San Diego to find murals commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art for their ground-breaking exhibition in 2010, Viva la Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape.

Gallery walks and open houses throughout the region encourage viewing, mingling and purchasing. With regular events like Ray at Night in North Park or Kettner Nights in the Little Italy, you can engage with local artists and art lovers alike, all while taking in the vibrant gallery scene of San Diego.
