San Diego is home to pristine beaches, miles of gorgeous coastline, nearby mountains, and one of the most unique natural landscapes in the state of California. This gorgeous region is called Torrey Pines, and it is a 2000 acre piece of the Southern California coast that has been preserved, and remains virtually untouched by human life in San Diego. To celebrate and support this untouched natural community, the Torrey Pines Park hosts an annual event called Art in the Pines.
Now in it’s 3rd year, Art in the Pines is two days of celebrating the nature of Torrey Pines, and coastal Southern California as a whole, through art. With the wildflowers in bloom all around, enjoy the variety of nature-themed paintings, sculptures, and photography on display at Torrey Pines Visitor Center.
The weekend event includes guided nature walks, music, beverages and artist demonstrations. Art in the Pines has plenty of kid-friend activities as well, including the amazing opportunity for the kids to paint and draw with the help of local artists. Additionally, a variety of San Diego area artists will display and sell their art for the benefit of educational programs such as field trips.
Torrey Pines is visited by travelers from all over the world and by locals who come daily to relax at the stunning overlooks and hike the peaceful trails. If you are traveling to San Diego in May and would like to experience a truly unique nature preserve, and enjoy some music and refreshments, Art in the Pines is the place to be.
