Sip wine, nibble complimentary tapas from wandering restaurateurs, admire artistic works at unique galleries and meet the artists.
Welcome to Art Walk San Jose del Cabo! It’s a delightful evening of strolling the historic art district in this Mexican town in the Baja Peninsula.
Art Walk San Jose Del Cabo
Every Thursday evening between November and June, dozens of art galleries stay open until 9:00 pm so visitors and locals can enjoy this popular free cultural event.
Many of the galleries are high-end, fine art establishments; many also feature top Mexican works of art.
You can view everything from hand-painted pottery, Shona African sculptures, blown glass, contemporary oil paintings and handmade Chiapas textiles to jewelry and sculptures made from 25 million-year-old amber.
Each year when we visit Los Cabos (for sun-and-sand family reunions), we make a point of hitting the San Jose Del Cabo Art Walk
Some of the art galleries we like:
- Casa Dahlia – abstract landscapes, Naïve folk art, paintings and sculptures from some of Baja’s best contemporary artists
- Galeria Corsica – museum-quality art, including sculptures of the chubby little Timoteo figure we first saw in Puerto Vallarta on a Wednesday evening Art Walk
- Frank Arnold Gallery – dramatic oil paintings and cast bronze sculptures by Frank Arnold
- Galeria de Ida Victoria – paintings, sculptures, prints and photography by established and emerging contemporary artists from Mexico and around the world
- Los Cabos Amber Art Gallery and Fine Art Annex – amber jewelry, rare fossil insects, amber perfume bottles and more
- Muvezi Gallery – stone sculptures by Shona artists from Zimbabwe
- Patricia Mendoza Art Gallery – contemportary art by some of Mexico’s top artists
