The City of San Luis Obispo is excited to announce ARTober, a month-long program during Arts & Humanities Month. ARTober will take place from October 1-31, 2023 and feature a community engagement campaign called Experience ARTober as well as Piano in the Plaza, a musical pop-up for all to enjoy.
San Luis Obispo’s arts and culture scene wouldn’t be as vibrant without local engagement. To encourage further support and appreciation for local arts and humanities organizations, the community is invited to Experience ARTober by engaging with SLO’s many diverse offerings.
Participants can visit three or more arts and cultural experiences in the City, document them and head to the SLO Visitor Center to pick up a free ARTober tote bag as well as be entered to win an extensive grand prize. To make it even easier to Experience ARTober, head to Visit San Luis Obispo’s events calendar for a hub of all arts and cultural events taking place throughout the month.
How to Enter:
Step 1 – Starting on October 1, 2023 visit at least three arts or cultural experiences in the city of San Luis Obispo and document it.
Step 2 – Bring your documentation to the SLO Chamber Visitor Center (895 Monterey Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401).
Step 3 – Receive an ARTober tote bag and be entered to win a grand prize!
ARTober will also bring Piano in the Plaza to the community. All month long, Mission Plaza will be home to an upright piano painted by local artist, Missy Reitner-Cameron. Regional pianists have been invited to play intermittently throughout October, and community members are invited to sit down and help fill the plaza with music as well. The piano will be uncovered and open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily.
