Public art to be on display for First Friday downtown: "Opening Doors to the Arts"
Another First Friday is almost upon us and it will feature a very interesting exhibit of public art downtown. Coordinated by Metro Galleries along with BECA (Bakersfield Emerging Contemporary Artists) the show is called "Opening Doors to the Arts" and will be displayed on sidewalks of the downtown arts district on 19 Street, 20th Street, the Wall Street Alley and in front of the Padre Hotel. Local artists took old doors and painted them, reflecting their own unique talents. Some of the doors are seen below, but see them yourself between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday.
