The Art Walk in San Jose del Cabo, which has long been considered a unique treasure of Los Cabos vacation tours; where visitors stroll at their own leisure and pace, checking out some of the pleasantly breathtaking art that is on showcase every Thursday night from 5:00 to 9:00 pm, began the new season, October 25th with the appearance of Captain America and Wonder Woman.The costumed couple were spotted sampling Sotol Tequila on a cool evening as they checked out some of the art on display at 16 different galleries all located within blocks from each other in the Spanish colonial restaurant and shopping area of San Jose del Cabo. The few streets of historic looking structures amidst the City's main downtown plaza at the feet of the Catholic Church is where the event takes place where all the high-end fine art galleries displaying original and varying styles of paintings, pottery, sculptures, photography, prints, silver and jewelry by local, national and international contemporary artists, open their doors with complimentary samplings of wine, tequila, and delectable Mexican treats. The galleries welcome guests of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose to enjoy an evening strolling through the friendly neighborhood of what is now famously known as Art Walk, which only takes place from November until June. During these special months and nights of the Art Walk year, galleries will often have an artist at work or in attendance to mingle with and meet, as part of a special evening or event. What many folks have termed an "amazing experience" is essentially a good opportunity to stroll through the 300 year old Historic buildings right out of a 17th Century time machine from Spain. It's a relaxing walk to enjoy before dinner; a good occasion to soak the fine authentic local and international art at any and all of the participating galleries, which have endured months of the city's downtown renovation project which has torn up streets and created havoc for travelers seeking to park or drive through the historically rich Baja California Sur area of San Jose del Cabo. "The talent within so much of the art is amazing," said Julio Lucio, "San Jose's a cool little old-school town with a pretty excellent collection of art. My friend has been painting a long time and sells a great deal of his work there and other cultural events throughout the year at Todos Santos and San Lucas. When I'm here, I like how they've preserved the architecture and character of this tiny slice of old Mexico. Even the street musicians who are out Thursday nights give it a really nice festive atmosphere. I still totally dig it and I've been living here 6 years." And while Julio Lucio is a big fan of the event; as are many others who have taken the stroll, including famous American writers and , whose prose was inspired by the poetry and feel of the quiet community whose Mexican friendliness remains intact even after hundreds of years. The Art Walk has steadily become a haven for world-class art even as the very same streets and buildings which have been greatly cared for and preserved endure the latest underground open street excavations and renovations which proceed and slowly wind down. "What started in 2001 with three or four galleries getting together and passing out pamphlets to draw people to their businesses," said gallery owner Patricia Mendoza, "Five years later began to shape itself into what it is today; a weekly event with more than 20 galleries, food, and music featuring free tequila and wine tasting in nearly all of the local shops." "It's been really successful," continued Mendoza, adding that, "The money people spend here at our restaurants and shops makes it the most important event in San Jose del Cabo."
