Originally started by the 101 Artists’ Colony in 2000, this innovative Arts Alive program has been picked up by dozens of communities across the country. Each banner has been painted by a local artist and is displayed on Hwy. 101 lamp posts from Cardiff, Encinitas through Leucadia. The banners hang from February to May on Hwy 101 during the silent auction.
The signature activity of the 101 Artists' Colony each year is the Arts Alive Exhibit. 101 artists have painted an original work of art that will be displayed on street lights along six miles of Coast Highway throughout downtown Encinitas, Leucadia, and Cardiff (including the Seaside Market parking lot).
These one-of-a-kind pieces of original fine art demonstrate the scope of talented artists in our community. We appreciate your support in attending our events and purchasing these fine art pieces that look great in any venue!
