Join us for Columbia's 29th Annual Artista Vista. This art-centric event is being reimagined this year to truly offer something for everyone. The Congaree Vista district of Columbia, SC, is an official South Carolina Arts & Cultural District.
Artista Vista begins Friday night with the Light and Lantern Parade and Gallery Crawl throughout the Vista District. The event continues on Saturday with events at Stormwater Studios, Lewis + Clark and One Eared Cow as well as a special evening ticketed event. Finally, Artista Vista culminates on Sunday with Crafty Feast from noon - 4 p.m. on Lincoln Street. Crafty Feast is a juried craft fair where all goods are handmade.
The Vista, Columbia's premier art district, is committed to continuing to keep the art scene in the Midlands thriving, as the past three decades attest. The Vista was synonymous with art by the early 1980s when artists began to move their studios to the area's affordable abandoned warehouse space. Today's restaurants, shopping and nightlife in historic buildings along the Gervais Street corridor are still driven by the Vista's creative energy.
