Arts and Culture in Los Cabos
Los Cabos has one of Baja’s most destination-worthy visual-arts scenes — publications from National Geographic to Harper’s Bazaar to The New York Daily News have hailed it as “vibrant,” “thriving,” and “inviting.” During your visit the region, we recommend that you enjoy the following art galleries, craft shops, and events — each showcasing works that acquaint you with the local aesthetic tradition.
San Jose del Cabo Art Walk
Held every Thursday from 5-9 p.m. during high tourist season (November through June), the Art Walk promises to be one of the most enjoyable evenings of your trip. A collection of galleries in the city’s historic Distrito del Arte stay open late, inviting visitors to stroll the cobblestone streets, sip wine, sample cheeses, browse local works, and interact with some of the top artists and gallery owners in Baja California Sur. Afterward, explore the Art District’s many fine bars and restaurants, including Baja Brewing Company and La Lupita Taco & Mezcal.
Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery
Ivan Guaderrama’s Art Gallery boasts pieces by the groundbreaking Mexican painter and sculptor it was named for. Many show off an interactive component — upon being touched, they will produce a customized sound according to your pulse — or angels who appear to take wing and fly off the canvas.
Galeria Pez Gordo
Galeria Pez Gordo offers the work of more than forty artists, embracing media from collage to photography to acrylic, including Karla Nieto, Enrique Ortiz, and Mark Gabriel. Recent exhibitions at the venue, located at The Shoppes in Palmilla, have run from “Vintage Mexico,” capturing classic Mexican packaging on canvas or wood, and Pez Gordo’s own oil-painting exhibition “To Cuba, With Love.”
Frank Arnold Art
Frank Arnold Art displays the work of the namesake “abstract-figurative” artist, including oil paintings and bronze sculptures that have received accolades from The New York Times. The Gallery District venue also contains a sculpture garden where you can admire works with a spiritual focus.
Casa Dahlia Gallery
Expat Leah Porter’s Casa Dahlia Gallery is known for a minimalist yet colorful aesthetic that sets it apart from other San José del Cabo Arts District’s galleries. Luis Espiridión, Antonio Viveros, and Peter Ambrose are just a few of the artists whose statues, sculptures, and paintings have recently been displayed within the space.
The Glass Factory
The highly rated Cabo San Lucas glass factory sells a wide array of individually blown glassware and features ceilings and walls incorporating local glass. On select days, publicly accessible glass-blowing demonstrations are held as well.
The Old Town Gallery
The Old Town Gallery prides itself on showcasing works that capture Los Cabos’ enchanting culture and scenery. Jonn Einerssen, Alan Wylie, and Chris McClure are among the featured artists at the charming venue in the heart of San Jose del Cabo’s Gallery District.
Every Friday, from 5-7 p.m., AlmArte holds a pop-up Artisans Market in the lobby of Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal. Here you can admire works and meet rotating guest artists, such as Francisco Bautista, a master of indigenous Huichol art, and painter Jose Cue, along with many more.
