WAL Public Market

It's time again for everyone's favorite week of the year. No, not Shark Week. OK, it's time for everyone's second favorite week of the year: Pink Week! Local hometown pink hero Gioia Fonda began the hue-appreciation week more than two decades ago, and this year, the hub of activities takes place at WAL Public Market.

The group show will include work in blushing tones by Fonda and other Sacramento creatives such as Melanie Bown, Sarah Detweiler, Jeff Mayry, Mary Mortimer, Joel Michael Smith and Bay Area artist Tofu.

Visit for more details on this show and its other event, ArtMix at the Crocker Art Museum on Thursday, November 12. The show at WAL will be up through December 10—more than a week means more opportunity to pink.
