Artifacts loves the Deco District. Bihl Haus Arts is a Jazz Age gem of a gallery (nestled surrealistically in an active-seniors’ apartment complex ) and presided over by community-minded curator Kellen McIntryre, who’s orchestrated a fun and enlightening self-guided tour of artist studios in the surrounding Deco District. The 2nd Annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour includes the Monticello Park, Jefferson, Woodlawn Lake, and Alta Vista Neighborhoods, home to such diverse artmakers as Rolando Briseño and Angel Rodriguez-Diaz, Danville Chadbourne, Norman Avila, and Norma Moore. “We’re uniting the artists and local businesses … educating the city about this area in a fun way, and strengthening all those bonds that make a neighborhood creative and dynamic,” McIntyre says. Drive around and see what these artists are up to in their rococo renovated storefronts and tucked-away 1920s bungalows, and appreciate contemporary art and SA’s Deco landmarks at the same time. February 14-15. Onandofffred.org for info.
