This year’s Arts Alive artists include returning artists, local business owners, and some exciting new names. Read on for a list of participating artists and consider joining the community at the unveiling ceremony, March 10, at Pacific View Elementary School, now known at Encinitas Arts Culture and Ecology Alliance. More details to come!

Janet Lawless Christ returns as this year’s title sponsor of Leucadia 101 Main Street’s 18 Arts Alive Banners. Janet is a North County realtor and artist herself. Her love for Leucadia and its creativity run deep, “Leucadia is a magnet for me and I find Leucadia to be a place of solace. I am truly honored to support public art in Encinitas because the arts support our souls!” Janet, who is ranked in the top 1% internationally for the Coldwell Banker Presidential Premiere, often combines her love of realty and art, transforming open houses into art shows for local artists; proudly displaying their unique work for her clients to see — no doubt allowing them to fall even more in love with their future home.
