“We had more than 50 participants who took an adventure to public art through the city,” says Public Art Commissioner Brad Willis, and people told us they loved it, “especially during these challenging times.”

The random drawing will award some $3,000 from Coronado restaurants and businesses, plus prizes from the city Parks and Recreation. The Walking Tour Giveaway was created to share the new smartphone app created by Coronado resident Joshua Tyler that guides users to more than 70 works of art and shares details about each piece and its artist.
