Arts in Auction

ENCINITAS — The banners came down and the bids went up on Sunday, marking the end of this year’s iteration of the annual Arts Alive Encinitas banner project.

A live auctioning off of the banners is the traditional end of the event, which is put on by the 101 Artists’ Colony, the Leucadia 101 Main Street and Cardiff 101 Main Street Associations.

The event, which has been a staple in the community for at least 16 years, also inspired a neighborhood in San Francisco to implement the same project in their neighborhood this year, with help from Danny Salzhandler, president of the 101 Artists’ Colony.
