Most of the talented artists are located in the central core of the downtown Vallejo, a very walkable distance from the Vallejo Transit Center. Just hop on one of our local routes with your Art Walk Passport to downtown Vallejo to be immersed in some of the best talent the bay area has to offer.
Program Analyst for SolTrans, Mandi Renshaw had this to say about the Art Walk; “Our main focus at SolTrans is to help get our riders to where they want to go. By making it easier and more convenient for people to attend community events like the Art Walk, we hope to inspire people in the community to come out and experience them. We want to get you out and about in our community. We’re excited to be a part of Art Walk and other great upcoming events in both Benicia and Vallejo, and hope to take our riders to new places!”
Come join SolTrans at the next Art Walk and maybe you will help discover the next artist to come out of the San Francisco Bay Area or at least find that piece that will help make your house a home.
