October is Italian Heritage month, and the festival celebrates the tradition of street painting which began in 16th-century Italy with itinerant artists, many of whom had been brought into the cities to work on the cathedrals. When the work was done, they would often recreate the paintings of the Madonna onto the pavement, and they became known as Madonnari. "Bella Vita Fest has been on the drawing table since 2018 and we're so excited to finally be able to bring it to the streets of San Diego's Little Italy," says Curt Brooker, ArtWalk San Diego Director. The event will run from 11am-5pm on both days. bellavitafest.com Françoise Gilot: Lithographs: 1950–1990 THROUGH NOVEMBER 11 | ATHENAEUM MUSIC & ART LIBRARY An exhibition of more than 25 lithographs from 1950-1990 by the late artist Françoise Gilot, the first and largest of its kind ever assembled, is now on display through November 11 at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library in La Jolla.
