CARLSBAD — Village resident, artist and designer Bryan Snyder has produced his fifth annual Carlsbad Village Local’s Calendar and has started distributing them to the local community free thanks to a collection of 2016 calendar sponsors.
Snyder will continue distributing the calendars beginning Jan. 9 and
Jan. 10 at locations in the Carlsbad Village, including the lawn at OffShore Surf Shop.
Exact times can be found by following Snyder Art on Instagram. His distribution will conclude at the Carlsbad Art Wall during the next schedule mural paintings Jan. 16 located at Señor Grubby’s, 377 Carlsbad Village Dr.
The calendar project began in 2011 with Snyder’s desire to document the Village through a series of artistic observations, and has evolved into a high quality and 100 percent community funded visual documentation consisting of 13 full color photos, 12 local sponsors, and this year, a collage of 2015 Carlsbad Art Wall murals (a project Snyder also directs).
“From the photos to the design to the fundraising, I put in a lot of work the last two months of each year to produce these calendars,” Snyder said. “It’s a project I love and the excitement it receives from the community makes all the work well worth it.”
In addition to the imagery, each month is sponsored by local Village businesses. These sponsorships help finance the printing of 500 calendars. These sponsorships also allow Snyder to distribute the calendars for free.
Some “legacy” sponsors who have sponsored for 3+ years include Señor Grubby’s, Paradise Pizza, O’Ireland, Skylar’s Home and Patio and Mas Fina Cantina. 2016 has welcomed some first time sponsors including Carlsbad Pipelines, Board & Brew and North County Family Bicycles.
