For the 30th year, the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History will present its annual Artwalk, showcasing the works of award-winning local artists, as well as younger, up-and-coming artists.

The two-day event will take place 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23-Sunday, Sept. 24 at the Mission Creek campus, 2559 Puesta del Sol.

The 2017 edition of this museum tradition will include an indoor show and a limited number of outdoor exhibitors, as well as a Children’s Artwalk. A no-host wine bar will be available.

The indoor exhibit will highlight works from The Oak Group, respected as one of the country’s first groups of painters for preservation of endangered landscapes. Pieces by other artists of note will shown as well. The outdoor show will feature invited and award-winning artists.

All works displayed, with the exception of those from the Children’s Artwalk, will be for sale. Proceeds will support museum programs.

The Children’s Artwalk will include paintings, drawings, sculptures, and weavings, created by more than 200 youngsters from local elementary schools.

While the Children's Artwalk works are not for sale, photo notecard sets of select pieces will be available for purchase. Proceeds from the sale of the notecards support the Children's Artwalk each year.

Tickets are $10 for non-members; free admission for museum members and children under age 12. Free parking is available at the museum.

For more information, contact the museum, 682-4711 ext. 110.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
