Redwood City, CA - June 9th , 2008 - Redwood City is fast becoming the peninsula's epicenter for the arts with new galleries, dozens of artists, and great places to hear live music! This summer Art on the Square will transform Courthouse Square as artists and artisans exhibit their work in the heart of our beautifully-renovated downtown.
Presented by Redwood City and its Civic Cultural Commission and Redevelopment Agency, three juried outdoor art shows will complement Music on the Square, the City's renowned Friday evening summer concert series. And, at each of these art shows, you can enter a drawing to win gift certificates good to spend in artists' booths at the show.
