The event, held during the four weeks of September, will draw more than 200,000 people to the county to view or participate in 100 culturally diverse events and exhibitions.
“Our goal is to show that San Diego is way more than surf and sun; we have a very dynamic art scene,” said Ann Berchtold, founder and director of the Arts Month San Diego.
Four distinct art locales are showcased, including Balboa Park, downtown San Diego, La Jolla and North County.
