This statement could generalize your Thursday night, if you make your way to this month’s 3rd Thursday Art Walk in Shoreline Village, directed by Some Things Creative.
From 5-9 p.m., local artists, such as Shawn M. King and musicians Shawn & Emily, will be displaying their creativity in many forms, while appreciating the unconventional exposition event that Some Things Creative has coordinated.
STC is a photography based, event planning company that creates opportunities for artists and organizations. Its curator and owner, Timothy Dunham, is a photographer who believes in utilizing the natural gorgeousness that Long Beach offers, to display artistic works and expose new artists to the community.
As you will see at the 3rd Thursday Art Walk, STC specializes in designing and building portable art displays that are affordable, collapsible, and fit in the back of a truck or SUV. They are a simple wood design, but enhance an art exhibition instantly.
These displays are large and visible from a far distance, while also allowing artists to effectively present many pieces of art. They are available for rent or purchase, and can be tailored to suit any artists’ needs.
For those of you highly intrigued by this idea of craftily displaying art in Long Beach’s stunning surroundings, you also must attend the upcoming Acoustic Tidal Artwalk, taking place at Colorado Lagoon on July 16th from noon to 10 p.m.
Dunham and volunteers dig and post large wood panels into the lagoon sand early in the day, and decorate them with lights and artistic pieces. As visually pleasing as this sounds, now imagine the sunset approaching and tide rolling in, and these art displays now shining in the lagoon water.

Aside from the picturesque art exhibition, the Acoustic Tidal Artwalk is very family friendly; with art activities, education and tons of play room for children and families to enjoy from noon to 10 p.m.
There will be food trucks, music, arts and crafts activities, live art and exhibitions, and the natural beauty and attraction of the Colorado Lagoon. This is the 3rd annual event, and has an abundance of praise from the community, as well as goals from Dunham.
“I originally wanted to activate the space and create a liaison between the lagoon and community,” Dunham said. “But it has taken on a whole other dimension. The reaction people have over witnessing the tidal wave is incredible and I have a lot of ideas in mind for the future of this event.”
That’s only two of many incredible, local events coming up, so mark your busy calendars now for June 16th’s 3rd Thursday Art Walk at Shoreline Village and July 16th’s Acoustic Tidal Artwalk at the Colorado Lagoon.
If you are an artist interested in participating in a Some Things Creative event, contact Tim Dunham immediately at email@example.com, as participants are still wanted for upcoming art walks and Acoustic Tidal Wave.
