Join us for Columbia’s 29th Annual Artista Vista, April 16-18, 2021. This art-centric event is being reimagined this year to truly offer something for everyone while maintaining safety and following COVID-19 protocols. The Congaree Vista district of Columbia, SC, is an official South Carolina Arts & Cultural District.
Artista Vista begins Friday night with a virtual lantern parade and Gallery Crawl throughout the Vista District. Artista Vista continues on Saturday with events at Stormwater Studios, Lewis + Clark and One Eared Cow. Finally, the weekend culminates on Sunday with the juried indie craft fair Crafty Feast, and Live on Lincoln, a ticketed evening event in partnership with the Koger Center.
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.
