Virtually and in-person starting Thursday, Oct. 1:
In celebration of October being National Arts and Humanities Month, the city of Santa Clarita hosts ARTober every year, offering free arts and humanities festivities throughout the month of October in the City of Santa Clarita. ARTober is a full-month celebration of the Arts.
And while COVID-19 has definitely changed the way we are doing things this year, there is still a full month of virtual, online and in-person events to celebrate ARTober, and we hope you join us! In the works are Saturday-sessions for the Arts Symposium, a new public art unveiling, virtual escape room fun, an Old Town Newhall scavenger hunt, open submissions for Sidewalk Poetry 2021, new art galleries and the list goes on.

New Galleries and New Calls for Artists
Art never stops.
Despite our local galleries having limited in-person options for viewing, all Santa Clarita galleries remain ‘open’ for virtual viewing. You can see all the current exhibitions [here], with the newest ‘ABC Canvas’ going live this weekend. 26 artists have produced 26 original pieces, each representing a letter of the alphabet. The original art is now installed at the First Floor Gallery at City Hall.
There are also two current Calls For Artists available for submissions. ‘Landscapes of the Mind’ will be featured at the First Floor Gallery at City Hall starting in December and the Town Center Art Space is currently accepting applications for the 2021 season. Details and deadlines for all Santa Clarita art opportunities can be seen [here].
