Cal Poly Pomona will host two special events to celebrate the 100th Second Saturday Art Walk in Pomona on Saturday, Feb. 10.

The entire Arts Colony in Downtown Pomona hosts the popular art walk every second Saturday of the month, beginning at 6 p.m. and extending into the evening. Close to two dozen galleries and arts-based businesses offer exhibits, artists receptions, music and open houses for crowds strolling through the neighborhood.

The Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center has teamed with Savoie Hair to present a Hair Show featuring an array of fashion and hairstyles. The Hair Show will begin at 9:30 p.m. in the Downtown Center's main gallery with a reception following.

Concurrently, the Downtown Center has three exhibits on display: the Left Hand Turn Lane exhibit, the Dance of Dawn exhibit and the Youth Art exhibit.

A folk art exhibition and performance by musician Bobby D will also be available at Studio 266, located at 266 W. Second St. in Pomona. The opening reception will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. This event is made possible through Charlene Teters, the Cal Poly Pomona Hugh O. La Bounty Chair of Interdisciplinary Applied Knowledge.

Bobby D is a professional drummer who has toured extensively with several gospel groups and recorded for Motown Records. He is also a music instructor at Sherman Indian High School. While better known for his music, Bobby D's art will be on display at Studio 266. Work by his students will also be displayed.
