Davis Transmedia Art Walk and Tours


Jun 29, 2013 to Sep 1, 2013
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

This event occurs every 14 week(s) on Sunday and Saturday.




The Davis Transmedia Art Walk is the first of it’s kind in the country. It is a five kilometer circular path that links the thriving downtown Davis to the University of California Davis. The completed path includes over fifty works of art from the top contemporary artists in the country and from pioneering artists such as Robert Arneson. It is one of the largest public art collections per square mile of any city in the nation. These work range from the bright and colorful abstract work of Kerry Rowland-Avrech to classic still life of Guy Diehl.  A number of the works are embedded with RFID computer chips with interactive features. With a free cellphone app visitors can readily download information about the art on display. They can even leave their own comments on the chip to complete the circle of discovery. Visitors can explore the walk for free and at their own pace or for a small fee they can take an artist and curator lead guided tour.  Overall the walk takes about two hours on foot but the bike friendly city of Davis welcomes bicyclists to come enjoy the art on two wheels. It's a great way to experience art and culture while being outdoors and experiencing the charming city of Davis.
