CARLSBAD— Local artist Bryan Snyder is encouraging art in Carlsbad Village by sponsoring a scavenger hunt for his doodle style paintings.
The scavenger hunt starts Aug. 9 and runs until Aug. 17. Snyder is also painting a mural at Carlsbad Village Yoga and Fitness, called Doodle’s Beach Day on Saturday and informational cards and maps will be available for those interested in the scavenger hunt.
There will be 17 hidden art pieces throughout the Village and the first 10 participants to snap a picture and upload photos of all 17 artworks to Instagram will receive an 11” by 14” Doodle print by the artist.
Some of the businesses hosting Snyder’s artwork include Village Grille, Paradise Pizza, Skylar’s Furniture and Board and Brew.
Information on the scavenger hunt will also be available at Art in the Village Aug. 10.
City officials are expecting 10,000 to 15,000 people to attend the art fair, which runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. More than 150 artists will be on-hand showing their works in photography, woodwork, sculpture, oil painting, watercolors and more.
The fair takes place on State Street and Grand Avenue.
The Carlsbad Village Association is also hosting the first ever Village Mural Tour Saturday at 6 p.m. The hour-long tour begins at CHOICE Superfood & Juicery on Carlsbad Village Drive and will visit six murals throughout the Village.
The free tour will end at Witch Creek Winery with an artist meet and greet wine reception.
